Historic Baseball

IMG_2183-1024x577

Joe and I went to Greenfield Village over the weekend to watch the World Tournament of Historic Baseball, which commemorates the 1867 Detroit Baseball Tournament. Teams from mainly the Midwest and one from New York came together this past weekend to play, and it was quite entertaining. The teams are composed of men from young to old, and they wear the old time baseball uniforms and play by the old rules – this means no gloves, no strikes, and a different baseball. Check out some photos from our time and see the old fashion uniforms. Make sure to scroll to the end to see why Joe got in trouble when we left!

My husband, Joe, really wanted to take a picture with the train, so before we left, we waited a few minutes until it came around. Joe got his picture, but was too close to the track, which caused the train to have to come to a halt. The conductor scolded Joe because after the train stops it takes a few minutes for them to start it back up. We apologized several times before heading out. Joe is still feeling a tinge embarrassed by his blunder but in the spirit of the game, is being a good sport in letting me share his tale of train treachery.
