HAZZAH!! A Vintage Baseball Afternoon

baseball baseLast 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.
