Lewes Base Ball Club of the Mid-Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League
At the Villages of Five Points
The Vintage Base Ball game resembles the game of today, there are several obvious rule changes. The first difference fans notice is that players do not wear gloves. Also, pitchers throw underhand, batters are called strikers, strikes are called when a striker does not attempt to swing the bat after a warning from the umpire, and foul balls can be caught on the bounce for an out.
Come out and see for yourself the competitive fun among teams from around the area!
