Weekends, June 18-September 5, 2022 | 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.
