Info

Over a century had passed since the last authentic baseball game had been played at the Nathan Hale Homestead, but last year we invited two teams to take the field once again for our 1st annual Vintage Base Ball Game! Join us on Saturday, July 13th at 11 a.m. as we welcome two teams from the Connecticut Vintage Base Ball Association, the Thames Base Ball Club and the Woodstock Hilltoppers, to witness a game played by the means and rules of yesteryear.
 
Authenticity is the name of this true gentlemen's game - cursing will result in a 25₵ fine and an apology to the spectators! The game will use hand stitched balls and the bats used are heavier and longer than modern ones. Pitchers are known as hurlers, batters are called strikers, and if the players want to roll up their sleeves, they'll have to ask you first!
 
Cracker Jacks and other ball game concessions will be available for purchase. So gather your history buffs and sports enthusiasts, bring your lawn chairs, and join us for this family fun event!
 
$10 per person. Registration recommended.
