Come out and join in a Civil War Base Ball game. Every summer the locals play the Federal Provost Guards and you're invited to jump in help whomever you'd like. The local rules include batters out if a hit ball is caught on one bounce, and also by soaking (hitting the runner with the ball between bases). No need to bring a mitt, we don't use them, but we will provide period correct bats and balls. Weather permitting there will be two games, the first at 10:00 a.m. and the second at 1:00 p.m.
