Strange little scene in Wellesley last night. Wellesley Little League’s senior baseball league was holding its tourney championship at Fiske Elementary School’s baseball field and the game was half an inning old when pop music started blaring and dozens of picnickers started descending upon school grounds. Turned out some sort of scheduling/communications SNAFU had taken place, the school did have a permit for the picnic and WLL showed good sportsmanship by suspending the game, with players quietly leaving the field in a daze.
Another baseball note: a Wellesley family will be honored at Fenway Park Friday night to recognize their late father/husband’s sacrifices as a member of the U.S. Army. College age triplets from the Sabatier family will each get scholarships.
