Vintage Base Ball Festival

Date: May 5th & May 6th

We are going to have a weekend of Vintage Base Ball with games being played between different teams all day Saturday and all day Sunday. Bring the family out to see how the game was played 150 years ago and marvel at how much it has changed over the years. Kids and adults alike will be amazed at how the game was played.

These teams play by the original rules of base ball along with vintage uniforms and equipment. It is truly amazing to watch them play the game the way that it was originally intended to be played. The kids will not believe how they can be up close to the players and see how the game they know so well started off.
