Additional Information

Experience Base Ball (that's the historical way to write it!) like you’ve never seen it before with the Roosters and Hens at the History Center’s Schmitt Field. They play in period-accurate uniforms, with replica bats and balls and follow the 1860's Rulebook.

Both teams are members of the Vintage Base Ball Association (VBBA).

Who are the Roosters and Hens?

The Roosters, established in 1997, is the men’s division of the History Center vintage base ball program. They chose their name to symbolize pride and strength - and to pay homage to the days when farmers and townsmen heard the rooster’s call at the start of each day! The Hens is the women & children’s division of the program. They were established in 2004 with the desire to experience the game that so excited their men.

The Roosters Vintage Baseball Team also has a facebook page. For additional information, go to:
