Vintage Base Ball
Saturday & Sunday, July 7 & 8
Imagine baseball played on an open field with underhanded pitching and without gloves. That is exactly what you will find at the Vintage Base Ball World Series, to be held at West Baden Springs Hotel this weekend, July 7 & 8. Six Midwestern teams will don the vintage uniforms and recreate the language and customs of 19th century base ball (it was commonly referred to by two words at that time) while competing in live action games.
The roster of teams includes the Indianapolis Hoosiers, Indianapolis Blues, St. Louis Unions, Batesville Lumbermen, West Lafayette Couriers and White River Base Ball Club. For the series, the teams will play by the 1864 rule books.
