Looking to put together a Vintage base ball club in Trenton/ Mercer County/Central Jersey area or Burlington County area. Games played mostly on weekends against other NJ teams as well as travel against teams from PA, DE, MD and NY. Games are played under 19th century rules (basic rules, no gloves, vintage bats) more for historical display and reenactment. Dress in uniforms and play the type of baseball played in 1860. If interested or more info email [email protected] Vintage Base Ball is baseball presented as being played by rules and customs from an earlier period in the sport's history. Games are typically played using rules and uniforms from the 1860s. Vintage base ball is not only a competitive game, but also a reenactment of baseball life similar to American Civil War reenactment. Players dress in uniforms appropriate to the time period, and in fact many teams are direct copies of teams that existed in the late 1800s. The styles and speech of the 1800s are also used while playing vintage base ball.
