A Day of Baseball in Harrisburg

The Harrisburg Senators began their 2019 campaign on Thursday with an 8-4 victory over the Bowie Baysox. Friday night’s game was rained out and rescheduled for Saturday doubleheader.

And, like last year, the appearance by the Presidents coincided with the annual Pink … Continue reading Two Days on the Island
