If you're tired of watching the same old baseball game, may I suggest watching a game that's a bit older? Check out Historic Base Ball: Base Ball 1867 Style at Greenfield Village.


Every weekend between now and August 20th, Greenfield Village has their own baseball games and it's unlike any game you've seen on TV. For one, they play by the 1867 rules, which means there's no baseball mitts and no foul balls. Every ball hit is fair game. Just like in the 1860s, there are no ropes either, so spectators can sit as close as they want to that 3rd baseline - although they do recommend that you keep your eyes on the balls and the players. When I say every ball is fair game, this also includes balls hit into the crowd and players will run after them.
