Old Tyme Vintage Baseball

September 19, 2004

The Jefferson Township Bicentennial Committee will host an Old Tyme Vintage Baseball Game on Sunday, September 19, 2004 beginning at 1 PM at Lakeside Field, Route 15 South, Lake Hopatcong.

The Flemington Neschacocks will play a rival team belonging to the Vintage Base Ball Association. They'll play the game by 1873 rules wearing 19th centruy style uniforms and using authentic replica period equipment on an open grass field. Foul balls caught on a bounce are an out, calls can't be argued, no one except a team captain can address the umpire, there's not a baseball glove in sight, the hurler (pitcher) pitches underhand, and a base on balls is awarded after three balls.

It will be a day to remember so bring a chair or blanket to enjoy an old fashioned game of baseball. For information call Carol at 973-697-3828.
