What is vintage base ball?
It is clubs (teams) dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of base ball played by 1860’s rules. Clubs competing today wear period reproduction uniforms, use period authentic equipment and follow baseball rules from the 19th century in order to accurately present the history of baseball to the public.
