Vintage Baseball Game & Autumn Heritage Day

Description

This immersive historical event will transport you back to the late 1800s. Drop by to enjoy an old-fashioned vintage base ball game and cheer on the Walker Ranchers as they take on their rivals! Game begins at noon.

The game will be played using nineteenth century rules. Base ball was two words back then. Those watching the game are cranks, rooters, or bugs; players are ballists. A hurler pitches the ball to the behind, or catcher. No gloves or helmets are worn, and a cloth ball and cloth bases are used. Listen for the players’ nicknames and a bell ringing as players reach home plate.

Costumed volunteers will also share games and chores of the past for visitors to take part in. Join us at Walker Ranch Homestead, where the past comes alive, and adventure awaits.

Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets for seating. No food will be available on site, so please bring a picnic and drinking water for your household. All ages welcome.

Registration not required.
