A big thank you to "Doc" Lawson from the Ohio Village Muffins Vintage Base Ball league for entertaining us and teaching us about Vintage Base Ball! A lot has changed since the 1800s!
If you missed the presentation or are interested in hearing more about Vintage Base Ball, you can catch the presentation at The Welcome Center at Brown House in downtown Wylie on Saturday, March 11. Wylie resident and base ball historian Robert "Doc" Lawson, describes the evolution of the game from town ball and rounders to early base ball, which rose to popularity during the Civil War. Learn about the changing rules, uniforms, and equipment, as well as the national association of teams that play ball the old-fashioned way. The vintage base ball exhibit will be on display through March - conveniently timed for the opening pitches of the 2023 season. Play Ball!
