Greenfield Village Lah-De-Dahs
The Greenfield Village Lah-De-Dahs Base Ball Club is based on a club that played in Waterford, Michigan in the 1880s. The existence of the Lah-De-Dahs was discovered during research for the J. R. Jones General Store, originally from Waterford, which now stands near the Village Green.

When the Lah-De-Dahs compete by the rules of 1867 in the gentlemanly pastime of baseball against the upstart Greenfield Village Nationals or other clubs from around the country, they can be seen wearing uniforms common in the 1880s, when many players took the field wearing neckties.
