Rising Sun Wins Mid Summer’s Night Classic

Elkton, MD– The first midweek 19th century vintage base ball game in Cecil County, Maryland was played Wednesday night, June 18 in front of over 125 fans at the Terrapin Station Winery.  It was a benefit for one of the Eclipse’s fallen players, Alberto “Taco” Soto.  Mr. Soto succumbed to sarcoma over the winter.  He played for Elkton and had several friends on the Rising Sun Club.

In a great twi-night match, Rising Sun jumped on the Eclipse to take an early lead.  Elkton was never able to get going offensively and ended the night with just 12 hits and 6 runs.  Great base running and play by the Rising Sun club led to a 9-6 win.  It was their first win over Elkton since 1867.  In all, it was a great night that saw over $300 raised for the family of Alberto Soto and for Sarcoma Awareness and research.
