West Baden Springs Hotel Lawn
Free Admission

Experience a rewind through sports history at Vintage Base Ball, which portrays America’s pastime as it was played in the earliest days of the sport. Vintage teams will take the lawn of West Baden Springs Hotel for a weekend exhibition from the period when “base ball” was two words and the game was played with rudimentary rules of the mid-1800s. Pitching was underhanded, fielders didn’t use gloves and base ball was played in open fields without fences. You might see a “muckle” (power hitter) crush a “four baser” (home run) as players will also recreate the look and lingo from the era, complete with vintage reproduction uniforms.
