FLEMINGTON, NJ – If you love baseball and have an interest in history, or you love history and have an interest in baseball, you might be interested in the Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club.

The team plays baseball, obviously, but by 19th century rules. The original Neshanock club was established in July 1866 and comprised mainly of the town’s prominent constituents. Today’s Neshanock were re-established in 2001 by Brad “Brooklyn” Shaw, who revived the original name of the team.

Rules back in the 1800s were different. It’s where fielders play without gloves bare-handed, and where at least one player cites his stomach as his chest protector.

On May 5, the team will square off against the Kingsland Colonels of Nutley Base Ball Club to see who has more “muckle.”

Of course, to some extent that will be up to the cranks to decide. That’s what they called fans back in the old days.

The teams will wear “authentic replicas” of 19th century equipment and wear 19th century-style uniforms. They’ll meet at Yanticaw Park in Nutley, and the game will be held from 1 to 3 p.m.

Admission is free; donations are accepted by passing the hat.

To the editor:

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs. Maslow stated that our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.

Peter Jacob, Clear Choice for CD7

To the editor,

In the fall of 2016, I was driving down Main Street in Flanders. As I always do before an election, I was conferring with my sister about the available choices for voting on my way to the polls. The last thing I said before I hung up, “You are going to want to make sure you check out Peter Jacob.” He is a 30 year old social worker who works with the ...
