Batter Up With Tennessee Vintage Baseball
Grab some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, because it’s time to head to the ball game – 1860s style.
This summer, the Tennessee Association of Vintage Baseball is spearing their inaugural season of vintage base ball between their two current teams, the Franklin Farriers and the Nashville Maroons. The Association aims to transport spectators to an earlier era, where the game was played without gloves and pitchers were required to throw underhand.
The goal for the organization is to bring back traditional values that are lacking in modern-day athletics and encourage a sense of belonging for both children and adults.
The games are free and open to the public. For more information and this year’s schedule, visit tennesseevintagebaseball.com.
