Saturday, August 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until September 4, 2022
Step into a 19th-century summer when the game was known as “base ball” as one of the early official rule books comes to life in Greenfield Village. Join in as players parade down Main Street each Saturday before they take the field with the uniforms, equipment and umpiring used in 1867. Cheer on the action alongside live brass music and the whistle of a passing steam locomotive. Root for Greenfield Village’s two teams, the Lah-De-Dahs and the National Base Ball Club, as they take on rival clubs from across the Midwest.
This is the origin of America’s pastime. Base ball the way it was meant to be played — an action-packed gentleman’s game, gloves optional.
