Old-school base ball world champion to be decided in mid-August


Published:

BOLD PREDICTION: A world championship will be held in metro Detroit this year (just not necessarily involving the Detroit Tigers). The winner will be decided when Greenfield Village hosts its World Tournament of Historic Base Ball on Aug. 9-10.

Each weekend through mid-August, games are played by 1867-era rules (gloves optional). Most times, the Lah-De-Dahs play the Greenfield Village Nationals BBC.

For the World Tournament, clubs from around the Midwest duke it out. The Saginaw Old Golds have won the last three titles. 

Call 313-982-6001 or visit thehenryford.org for info.
