CLARK'S HARBOUR, N.S. – There was a good turnout in Clark’s Harbour for a June 30 exhibition baseball game between the Shelburne County Schooners of the Nova Scotia Intermediate Baseball League and a team of alumni from the old Southwestern Nova Scotia Baseball league.

The Schooners were 2-1 winners in a game that was called after six innings due to rain.

“We pitched three guys that don’t normally pitch, for the fun of it,” said Keith Nickerson of the Schooners, adding that the southwestern league “legends” played well.

“They had three quality pitchers: Tyler Symonds, Travis Smith and Andrew Holland,” Nickerson said. “We had lots of fans and might consider doing it again.”

A run-down ensues between home plate and third base.
