Description: 

What better way to relax on a Sunday afternoon than like the earliest settlers of our villages? Take in a base ball game. And yes, that's two words!

Come out to Lindberg Park on Sunday, September 22 at 1 p.m. for a Vintage Base Ball game between the Chicago Salmon and the McLean County Prairie Chickens. The teams play the game the way it was meant to be played--by the rules set forth in 1858. And with reproduction period equipment: uniforms, bats, balls, and bases, but no gloves.

This event is free and co-sponsored by the Park District of Oak Park. The Historical Society will be selling refreshments including Cracker Jack. Bring your lawn chair and sun hat, and root, root, root for your Chicago Salmon!
