VINTAGE BASEBALL | FREE
All Ages | May 15 | 11am–3:30pm | Mill Race Park
Drawing upon baseball’s rich history, hundreds of teams all around the country now play “vintage base ball,” using the very oldest rules, from when the game was being developed over 150 years ago. On Saturday, May 15, beginning at noon, the Indianapolis Blues, Batesville Lumbermen, and Ohio Village Muffins will play a round robin set of games according to the rules of 1864. The uniforms, equipment, and terms they use all are based on those rules. Come out to Mill Race Park and let us take you back to a time before big money and massive stadiums – even before the players wore gloves! Players will be happy to explain the differences between their game and the modern one, and if you’re interested, you can even take a turn at bat or in the field.
