Vintage Base Ball

Saturday, September 19 & Sunday, September 20
Saturday game starts at 9am
West Baden Springs Hotel Lawn

 

Vintage Base Ball is played by the 1864 rules and customs on the north lawn adjacent to the main entrance of the West Baden Springs Hotel. The mid-nineteenth century game was considerably different than today’s game and Vintage Base Ball players wear the old-style uniforms and recreate the game. Most players played barehanded until the mid-1880s but starting in the late 1860s a few catchers with raw hands needed to wear thin buckskin gloves to keep on playing. For more information about Vintage Base Ball visit www.vbba.org.
