Experience a rewind through sports history at Vintage Base Ball, which portrays America’s pastime as it was played in the earliest days of the sport.

Pitching was underhanded, fielders didn’t use gloves and base ball was played in open fields without fences. You might see a “muckle” (power hitter) crush a “four baser” (home run) as players will also recreate the look and lingo from the era, complete with vintage reproduction uniforms.
