Vintage Base Ball Game at Terry Park
Edison Ford presents a living history exhibition of Vintage Base Ball in a small tournament format with four teams playing four consecutive games by 1860s rules. Players will wear vintage uniforms, no gloves, and use wood bats and lemon peel baseballs. Games will be played at historic Terry Park in Fort Myers- a site with more than 100 years of baseball history. Spectators can complete their Spring Training journey by experiencing the origins of an American pastime, featuring the Fort Myers Vagabonds, the Central Florida Awkwards, Akron Black Sox, and the Chicago Salmon with commentary from the Boss Lady.
