Old-timey baseball returns to the Rochester Hills museum

Another season of old-fashioned baseball is underway at the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. The Rochester Grangers Vintage Baseball Club will hold games on May 28, June 4, July 10 and August 28. They’ll throw out the first pitch at 1:00 p.m. and fans are encouraged to bring their own chair.

Vintage baseball captures the essence of the game in the early 1800s, when players didn’t use gloves are were required to play the game with exceptional gentlemanly behavior. The games are nine innings, but the pitchers throw slowpitch and various terminology harkens back to the early days of America’s past time.
