Historic Base Ball in Greenfield Village

Historic Base Ball in Greenfield Village

The Henry Ford Museum, Walnut Grove
20900 Oakwood Blvd. 
Dearborn, MI 48124

Saturday, June 8 - Sunday August 18, 2019 | First pitch 1:30 p.m.

Step into a 19th-century summer — when the game was known as “base ball” — as one of the early official rule books comes to life in Greenfield Village. Join in as players parade down Main Street each Saturday before they take the field with the uniforms, equipment and umpiring used in 1867. Cheer on the action alongside the whistle of a passing steam locomotive and root for Greenfield Village’s two teams, the Lah-De-Dahs and the National Base Ball Club, as they take on rival clubs from across the Midwest.

Free for members or with village admission.

Historic Base Ball is played select weekends in summer, and includes the annual World Tournament of Historic Base Ball in August:
