Play Ball! The Old Fashioned Way

Posted: Updated:

Vintage baseball season is underway in Mid Michigan. 

The Bay City Independents, historic, 19th Century base ball club, will host a ball match on Sunday June 26th at Carroll Park at 2pm.  The Independents will play host to the Mighty River Hogs of Midland County in a game played by the rules of 1865 when base ball in our state was young.  

So bring your chairs or blankets, and come witness history come alive and base ball as it was meant to be played by gentlemen with wooden bats, a leather ball, and no gloves…. just as nature intended.
