Farmington Valley and Hartford Area men with base ball experience (yep, it was two words in the 1860-1880’s) are invited to play our nation’s great game the way it was meant to be played.
Come join the Simsbury Taverneers Vintage Base Ball team. Play as hard as you can while hampered by 1800's reproduction equipment and historical rules. This is no scripted reenactment.
We play many of the best teams in New England and have a lot of fun with gentlemanly play and tough competition.
We play 8-10 games May through August. We play a mix of home and away games with away games rarely more than a 30-45 minute drive.
Visit www.simsburytaverneers.com for ballist bios, vintage rules and lingo and past season pics. Players of grit (rugged determination) and ginger (spirited play) should contact John “Lucky” Lucker at email@example.com or 860-539-5398 for details. Huzzah!
