For those who have heard about vintage base ball or seen me post articles about our local team, the Vermilion Voles and not really have a clue what it’s all about, here’s your answer.
The Voles have posted an all-encompassing guide to vintage base ball. It’s complete with the 1858 rules that vintage ballplayers adhere to, a glossary of game terms so that you’ll fit in when you watch a game and even photos of some of the vintage base ball teams playing the game.
The guide was written by Dave “Beans” Heim of the St Louis Unions. I’ve been a fan for three or four years and still found the guide quite informational. Well done!
