Last weekend my daughter and I spent a hot, sunny, Sunday afternoon (yes, a hot and sunny day in Ohio, which is rare these days because it’s rained everyday since) watching a couple games of vintage baseball. I’m a huge baseball fan and this was the first vintage game I saw. It was a much different game in the late 1800’s than it is today, that’s for sure. Just a couple real quick examples, there were no called balls or strikes and if a struck ball was caught on the first bounce it’s an out! Awesome!!
Needless to say, I loved it! My daughter, not so much. I anticipated that but she hung in there like a champ. If it was up to me, I would follow these teams all around the state to watch them play on weekends. I’d become a vintage baseball deadhead.
On this day there were two games, a women’s and a men’s game, pitting a ragtag Galion team against the visiting and veteran Columbus Muffins. They were both great games and the home team came away with at least a draw for the women. The Galion men…I’m sure they had fun.
The games were played on a big field behind the hospice building. Below are some of the images I captured of them.
That was our Sunday in pictures. Thank you for visiting! I truly appreciate it!!
