Haverhill Mill Outing - Overseers and Second Hands Enjoy Clambake
    The overseers and second hands of the Hathaway Mill corporation of New Bedford made merry at Sylvan grove Saturday afternoon, and enjoyed a clambake, a baseball game and an elaborate programme of sports. The merrymaking extended up to a late hour Saturday night, and many of those present barely left in time to get a car to the city.
    The party went out on a special car which left Union street at 1 o'clock, and many who missed the special went out on the next regular. Some of the more favored made the trip in automobiles, and the crowd numbered 200 after all arrived at the grove.
    An excellent clambake was served by Charles McAvoy promptly at 2 o'clock, and immediately afterwards all assembled in the grove and had their pictures taken.
    A baseball game was started between the overseers' team and one made up of the second hands. Only three innings were played according to agreement, and the second hands won by a score of 7 to 5. Sam Alsop featured for the overseers, making a star one-hand catch in centre field and completing a double play and making a home run. In the second inning which scored three men ahead of him, Peter Forand, of the second hands, duplicated Alsop's home run in the third inning and virtually won the game for his team.
