BALTIMORE (October 22, 20006) -- The Chesapeake and Potomac Base Ball Club ended its inaugural 2006 season with a doubleheader sweep against the visiting Elkton Eclipse at Carroll Park in Baltimore.

Unfortunately, the C&P was on the losing end of the sweep, losing both the opening match and the seven-inning second game. Scores and highlights to follow. Special thanks to SABR member "Specs" Davenport, a crank who graciously stepped forward to officiate as umpire in the second frame. Though it was his first encounter with the 1864 rules, Mr. Davenport did his duty well and called a fair game. Both clubs joined to offer three cheers to Mr. Davenport at the conclusion of the match.
