Calling all baseball lovers!

Part game, part show, part history lesson, spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Two vintage baseball teams, the Flemington Neshanock and Monmouth Furnace, will play competitive matches of bare-handed baseball, wearing period uniforms and using rules from 1864 or 1873. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions about the history of baseball and to partake in batting practice in between games.
