Get Ready For "Base Ball," West Baden!

Last updated on Wednesday, April 23, 2008

(WEST BADEN) - Get ready for a rousing game of base ball in West Baden there, old chap.

That's base ball, as in two separate words, played by men in knickerbockers, not using gloves, fly outs still counting after 1 bounce, and etiquette violations sometimes garnering stiffer penalties than rules violations.

The Vintage Base Ball Association will be presenting a double header between the Cincinnati Buckeyes and the Indianapolis Blue Jays this coming Saturday at the West Baden Town Park baseball field.

Admission is free for the game, and to learn more about vintage base ball, check out the Vintage Base Ball Association's website at vbba.org.
