Historic Baseball

Historic Base Ball in Greenfield Village

June 8, 2019 - August 18, 2019 (Saturdays & Sundays - Except 6/29, 6/30, 7/6 & 7/7) | First Pitch 1:30 p.m.

This is thrill-a-minute base ball in the glorious outdoors. 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.
