Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy welcomes you to the official website of Lynn, Massachusetts.

    • City Hall Info
      Harry Agganis Born in Lynn, Massachusetts, Agganis was a star football player at Boston University, primarily at quarterback. After a sophomore season in 1949, when he set a school record by tossing fifteen touchdown passes, he entered the Marine Corps. Agganis played for the Camp Lejeune (N.C.) football and baseball teams. He received a dependency discharge from the Marines to support his mother and returned to college to play in 1951-52. Agganis became the school's first All-American in football. Agganis set another Boston University mark by passing for 1,402 yards for the season and won the Bulger Lowe Award as New England's outstanding football player. Coach Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns thought he could be the successor to Otto Graham and drafted the college junior in the first round of the 1952 NFL draft, offering him a bonus of $25,000. Boston Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey outdid Brown, however, and signed Agganis to play Major League Baseball for the Red Sox as a first baseman for $35,000. Following his 1953 college graduation, Agganis played with the Triple-A Louisville where he hit .281 with 23 home runs and 108 RBI. He made his major league debut on April 13, 1954. Agganis had a modest rookie campaign, though he did lead American League first basemen in assists and fielding percentage.

Welcome to This site is dedicated to exploring sports ideas. Please come back soon as new material is always on the way. The Tournament Auction A Brief History vs. Traditional Office Pools How It Works I have participated in (and run) my fair share of NCAA Tournament pools, and I have been filling out brackets since the age of 12. I thought that was as good as it could get. But in 2005, while I was literally on the other side of the world from March Madness, I was looking for a new way of conducting a pool and stumbled upon the auction format. The tournament auction has numerous advantages over traditional office pools, is easy to set up, and is extremely fun. Join me on my tournament auction journey and you will understand why I'm never going back to a regular office pool again.

History of sport
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search An Egyptian burial chamber mural , approximately 4,000 years old, showing wrestlers in action. The history of sports probably extends as far back as the existence of people as purposive sportive and active beings. Sport has been a useful way for people to increase their mastery of nature and the environment. The history of sport can teach us a great deal about social changes and about the nature of sport itself. Sport seems to involve basic human skills being developed and exercised for their own sake, in parallel with being exercised for their usefulness. It also shows how society has changed its beliefs and therefore there are changes in the rules. Of course, as we go further back in history the dwindling evidence makes the theories of the origins and purposes of sport difficult to support. Nonetheless, its importance in human history is undeniable.
edit Antiquity
Sports that are at least two and a half thousand years old include hurling (similar to field hockey ) in Ireland harpastum (similar to rugby ) in Rome cuju (similar to association football ) in China , and polo in Persia . The Mesoamerican ballgame originated over three thousand years ago.

11. Pesäpallo - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
Brief article describing the sport and its history.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Redirected from Finnish baseball Jump to: navigation search Girls playing pesäpallo in Siilinjärvi Pesäpallo [pesæpɑlːo] Swedish Boboll , also referred to as " Finnish baseball ") is a fast-moving ball sport that's quite often referred to as the national sport of Finland and has some presence in other countries, such as Germany Sweden Switzerland Australia , and Northern Ontario in Canada (Both Canada and Australia have high Finnish and Scandinavian populations). The game is similar to brännboll rounders baseball and lapta Pesäpallo is a combination of traditional ball-batting team games and American baseball. The game was first developed by Lauri "Tahko" Pihkala in the 1920's. Pesäpallo has changed with the times and grown in popularity. Its success as spectator sport is based on the unique combination of skills, smarts, athleticism and teamwork required in the modern game. The game is nowadays also known by the name of pesis. Rooted deeply in the history of Finland as a nation and in the everyday life in the country regions, pesäpallo is also enjoyed by all Finns in schools, parks and fields as a hobby, which can be played by everybody for great fun. The rules of pesäpallo are quite complicated, but the idea of the game is simple. One team tries to score by hitting the ball and running through the bases, the other team tries to defend by catching the ball and putting the runners out. The key to the game and the most important difference between pesäpallo and baseball is the vertical pitching. Hitting the ball, as well as controlling the power and direction of the hit, is much easier. This gives the offensive game much more variety, speed and tactical dimensions than in baseball. The fielding team is forced to counter the batter’s choices with defensive schemes and anticipation, and the game becomes a mental challenge.
