Hungry for Baseball? Full Meal Arrives

Forget Shark Week – Shark Summer on the Vineyard is about to begin, not in the water but on the baseball field.

The Martha’s Vineyard Sharks, the Island’s own collegiate wooden bat summer baseball team, stage their second season home opener by taking on the Nashua Silver Knights at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 9. In honor of opening day, the Sharks are opening the doors for all budding ball players by giving free admission to all Little and Junior League players. For the regular folk, tickets are $3 for children (under 13) and $5 for adults.

As part of the celebration, homegrown band, Dukes County Love Affair (DCLA), plays a post-game performance. For those unaware, DCLA plays it loud and fast, inside-the-park-home-run fast, that is.

The Sharks next home game is Sunday, June 10, against the U.S. Military All Stars. Play begins at 5 p.m. with free admission for all veterans and music by Mike Benjamin.

The Sharks will host 27 games this summer, with all games played at the regional high school.
