Vintage Base Ball Game

Saturday, August 5, 2017

Baseball history comes alive with help from the Cowtown Vintage Base Ball Club. Donning uniforms from the 1860s, the game is played using base ball rules from the Victorian era, which are quite different from today's game. For instance, outfielders can catch the ball on one bounce for an out and base stealing and sliding are prohibited. Crowd participation is highly encouraged and often impacts the rulings on the field.
