This year, the Doc Adams Birthplace Classic took a brief hiatus, as play migrated to Connecticut for the Doc Adams Memorial Classic.

This annual event started in 2016 in Andover, MA as the Doc Adams Invitational. In 2018, the event moved to Doc Adams’ birthplace of Mont Vernon, NH to be held in conjunction with Lamson Farm Day and in 2019, it was rededicated as the Doc Adams Birthplace Classic.

This year marked the first time the annual event was hosted in the state where Doc Adams attended college (at Yale) and spent his “retirement” years.

After his playing days, Adams moved to Ridgefield in 1865 and then onto New Haven in 1888. He passed away in New Haven on January 3, 1899, and was laid to rest in Evergreen Cemetery.
