Vintage Base Ball Doubleheader

Brandywine Base Ball Club of West Chester

The Brandywine Base Ball Club of West Chester will host a doubleheader of vintage base ball matches on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at East Goshen Park (1661 Paoli Pike, West Chester, PA 19380). We will welcome our good friends of the Eclipse Base Ball Club of Elkton, Maryland.

Vintage Base Ball (two words) is played by the rules of 1864. Fielders do not wear gloves as they were not yet used in the game's infancy. The ballists wear period authentic uniforms and use bats and balls meeting the specifications of 1864. Spectators are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to watch this family friendly and FREE event. All those who are interested in history and baseball are sure to enjoy this unique presentation of living history. Our members will take time to answer any questions you may have about our club's history and the nuanced rule differences from modern baseball. Our matches will be played on the open expanse of grass at the north end of East Goshen Park. We typically do not play on modern cut diamonds.

Inquires can be sent via email to brandywinebbc@gmail.org For additional information, visit our website brandywinebbc.org
