In the mood for some old-fashioned base ball? Join this group and Summit Station, Champaign County’s newest Vintage Base Ball Club, for an afternoon of America’s favorite pastime, 1860s style! During the jamboree, games featuring 4 Illinois teams will be held throughout the day and played according to 19th century style rules put in place by the Vintage Base Ball Association. In addition to the games, the Museum of the Grand Prairie will also display a temporary exhibit on local base ball history entitled “A Whole ‘Nother Ball Game: Baseball in East Central Illinois, 1940 to the Present.” Summit Station is looking for players to make up Champaign County’s team!
Speak with players and learn how you can join this local vintage base ball club. Food may also be available for purchase.
