Historic Baseball

Historic Base Ball: 1867 Style

June 10 - August 20 (Saturday & Sunday) | First pitch 1:30pm

This is thrill-a-minute base ball in the glorious outdoors. Our grandstand is a grassy hillside shaded by dozens of massive walnut trees. We have live, 19th-century music by the Dodworth Saxhorn Band. And every so often, a Greenfield Village passenger train pulled by a 19th-century steam locomotive chugs along the perimeter of the outfield. It’s classic.
