The brainchild of State Representative Aaron Michlewitz (D-Mass.), the North2South Baseball Classic is an All-Star baseball exchange that seeks to bring together two prominent Boston neighborhoods, the North End and South End. The mission of the North2South Baseball Classic is to annually unite these neighborhoods in the spirit of friendly competition and good will.
The North End won Game 1 of the North2South Baseball Classic at the Friday, June 25th game at Langone Field with a score of 3-7. Pizzeria Regina donated 40 pizza pies and Lucia’s Donato Frattaroli donated the soda. The second game of the North2South Baseball Classic will take place on Monday, June 28th at Luis Taint Field, Peters Park in the South End. Game time is 6:00 p.m.
