The New Hampshire Granite fell to the well staffed Whatley Pioneers on 27 Apr 2013. Well the Granite provided excellent defense, following this 4 day journey to the Western expanses, their bats were lacking. Some may say it was due to offseason laziness but senior Granite member Doc Cochran contributed to the work of the devil. The Granite believe after their successful 2012 campaign their bats feel into the hands of a local witch doctor who cursed the sacred wood. In response the Granite sacrificed Mike Utah O’Connor’s lunch in order to appease the Gods. Only time will tell if this was enough of a sacrifice to reverse the curse. Next game June 1, Nashua NH Pennichuck Educational Schooling Grounds.

On Saturday, June 19th members of the NH Granite joined the Melrose Pondfielders, Mudville Nine, Boston Beaneaters and hosts Essex Baseball Club in the second annual New England Vintage Baseball All-Star Game held at the Spence-Pierce-Little Farm in Newbury, MA. After ditching the first game to Essex led by the brilliant pitching from 1967 American League Cy Young Award winner Jim Lonborg, the Granite and their comrades lost the second game by a slim margin of 4-3. But in the final game of the afternoon they more than made up for their earlier foibles by a 16 – 11 rout of the men from Essex. The cranks were out in full spectrum and it was a spectacular day of 1861 era baseball….
Boston, MA – In a hard fought battle the Granite lost late to the Boston Americans. After a few libations after the game the gents all went off in their own directions. However about 24 hours after the game the Granite’s own Mike “Utah” O’Connor changed the face of this nation. While the details have not been released yet it appears Utah was directly involved in the fire fight that lead to Osama Bin Laden’s death. Unable to be reached for contact Mike O’Connor released the following statement, ” I’d like to think all the little people for this moments, especially Flask for conserving my energy in yesterday’s game. I could not have done it without using the speed I have been holding out for years on the Granite. In 2 weeks we return to the field and will do so with a new mascot, Bin Laden’s [expletive] head. ” While news is still being pieced together this certainly may be the event that pushes the Granite into its first victory of the year.
