Vintage Base Ball

A vintage game of “base ball” as it was meant to be played, barehanded and by gentlemen’s rules on the old Fort Mackinac ball field behind Fort Mackinac, the oldest continually used ball field in Michigan! Learn an old-fashioned cheer, watch players fined for smoking cigars on the field, and enjoy a good old-fashioned rivalry! The game pits the Fort Mackinac Never Sweats against the Rochester Grangers on Saturday, July 24, at 6:30 p.m. Gates open at 6:00 p.m.

Admission is by donation.
