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

there's not a baseball glove in sight, the hurler (pitcher)
pitches underhand, and a base on balls is awarded after three
It will be a day to remember so bring a chair or blanket
to enjoy an old fashioned game of baseball. For information
