Sarasota International Cricket Club is featured in a recent article of LWR LIFE Magazine by Robin Harthill.
Cricket originated during the Dark Ages in Northern Europe, and then popped up in Sarasota some five centuries later. According to local lore, the Sarasota International Cricket Club took root in 1983 in a bar on Siesta Key after a group of British friends bandied about which sport was better, baseball or cricket.
“It might be an apocryphal story, but it probably has a grain of truth,” says Richard Lawrence, president of the Sarasota International Cricket Club (SICC).
Cricket trumped baseball in that debate, and 32 years later I’m about to find out why.
