On Sunday, October 14, 2018, the Bristol Historical Society in collaboration with Team Bristol will be hosting a double header vintage baseball game at Muzzy Field.
Billed as “The 2018 Northeast Historic Baseball All-Star Event,” players from the New England states will compete in two separate games: the first by 1864 rules and the second by those of 1865.
The teams will be dressed in authentic period uniforms and compete with vintage equipment on a playing field without a pitcher’s mound, as was the standard of the day. The score will be posted on a blackboard and announcements made through a megaphone.
Play will begin at 12 noon and last until approximately 4 PM. Admission is free and children are welcome. Join us to take a step back in time and see how American’s favorite pastime was played and enjoyed over 150 years ago.
