Vintage baseball team looking for players

FLINT — The University of Michigan-Flint’s vintage baseball team is returning for a second season and is looking for players to join the team.

Each year over 25 teams take to fields all over Michigan dressed in period uniforms, using replica equipment, and playing by the rules of the 1860s to recreate the earliest days of America’s past time.

For the second year in a row, UM-Flint’s Department of History and Whaley Historic House Museum are sponsoring a team. Practices have already begun for the team and are open to anyone who is interested in joining the team.

“If you enjoy playing baseball and have an interest in the game’s history then you would love playing vintage baseball,” Wyatt Professor of U.S. History Thomas Henthorn said.

Home games are played Saturday afternoons near the William S. White Building on the UM-Flint campus. Details: contact Henthorn at henthorn@umflint.edu. — L.P.
