It was serious bocce this weekend at the North End’s Langone Park Bocce Courts. After an intense battle, it was Peggy and Bobby Magri taking the first place trophy in the tournament sponsored by the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame and “Taste of the North End.” Peggy and Bobby are shown playing here in orange and you can see how intense the competition became, other than the guys playing cards in the background! See more photos from the bocce tournament.
