Vintage ‘Base Ball’ Game

August 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$15 – $18

Baseball fans, young and old, will get a kick out of the annual Vintage “Base Ball” Day at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village on Aug. 21. Catch a doubleheader as the Somerset Frosty Sons of Thunder take on the Addison Mountain Stars with games beginning at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Players will be decked out in old-timey uniforms and play the game according to the 1860 rulebook. At that time, gloves were not worn by players, called “ballists.” If a ball hit by the batter, called the “striker,” is caught after one bounce, the striker is called out. It’s an interesting history lesson for young sports fans, who receive free admission throughout August and September.
