Vintage baseball at Crosley Field on 8/3

(May 15, 2024 - Blue Ash)2024 Vintage Baseball Game (1)

Batter up! Get ready for some free vintage baseball action at the Blue Ash Sports Center!

The Cincinnati Buckeyes will face off against the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings for an exciting, historically accurate game at Crosley Field, 11540 Groom Road, on August 3, 2024, at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s what you can expect, according to the Cincinnati Vintage Base Ball Club’s website:

Both teams play ball in authentically recreated uniforms, with equipment made to the standards of the period. The most striking difference is the lack of gloves, which were not used regularly until the 1880s. We utilize the rules, customs, and terminology of the day, maintain honest sporting attitudes during play, and field capable, gentlemanly ball players from all walks of life who share the same love for the game of base ball. The result is an educational, historic, and entertaining experience that anyone can enjoy.

Plus, children will be able to run the bases! Concessions will be available.

The event is free, no ticket required.
