Old Mill and Northeast, two teams that had been going in opposite directions, hooked up in a thriller to inaugurate the new Joe Cannon Stadium before 500 chilled spectators in Harmans last night.
Old Mill held a 6-5 lead when the game was suspended in the 13th inning because Cannon officials and local community organizations have agreed that play may not continue after 11 p.m. The four-hour marathon will continue at a date to be determined.
Play ended in controversy after Old Mill's Philip McGinnis scored all the way from first on a stolen base, coupled with catcher Derek Dolch's throwing error. McGinnis appeared to have missed home base when he slid to avoid Dolch's tag, but was then assisted back to the plate by an Old Mill teammate.
