The 70th annual Artists and Writers Softball Game was held Saturday at Herrick Park in East Hampton, where the writers won for the third consecutive year, this time by a score of 12-8. Anthony Friedman, a culture writer for the New Yorker magazine, was named the game’s most valuable player after he hit a towering three-run homerun in the first inning and helped engineer a game-ending double play in the ninth. Photographer Dell Cullum was also in attendance.
