Vintage baseball at Wade House

Guests to the Wade House are invited to cheer on the Wade House Red Jackets historic base ball team Sunday, Aug. 14 at 1:30 p.m. as they defend their home turf against the Milwaukee Grays in one of their last base ball games of the season.

Guests will get to field and hit with the team and learn how to play base ball by the rules of 1860s.

Wade House Historic Site promotes living history by bringing the 19th century to life in its sponsorship of the Wade House Red Jackets base ball team in a vintage league that re-enacts how base ball was played in the 1860s.

The Wade House Red Jackets, along with the other clubs that they compete against from May through August, use the rules, equipment, costumes and manners of the 1860s. The vintage game emphasizes honor, team play, respectful conduct and community pride. Spectators are transported back in time to witness what the sport was like during and just after the Civil War.

Bleacher seating is available, but guests are welcome to bring chairs and blankets as well.
