Gettysburg, PA— The Gettysburg 19th Century Base Ball Tournament has announced the schedule for the 2nd Annual vintage base ball festival which will take place in Gettysburg at Hickory Hollow Farm on July 16 and 17, 2011.  Last year’s inaugural event drew 1,500 spectators as well as President Lincoln, General Grant and General Lee to see six 19th century base ball clubs compete in a two day event.  Last year’s field included clubs from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey.  The 2011 edition has gone national with 10 clubs competing from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Colorado.  Last year’s sponsors included Gettysburg Eddies, Gettysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Gettysburg Foundation, 19cbaseball.com, Hickory Hollow Farm, and the Union Drummer Boy.

 

The 2011 Tournament will be broken down in to three pools on Saturday.  The first division is the Lincoln Pool featuring the Cecil BBC of Chesapeake City, Maryland; the Flemington Neshanock from New Jersey; and the Huntington Champion Hill Toppers from Indiana.  The Grant Pool includes the Mechanicsburg Nine from Pennsylvania; the Mudville Nine from Massachusetts, and the Saginaw Old Golds from Michigan.  The Lee Pool features the Eclipse BBC of Elkton from Maryland; the Cincinnati Buckeyes from Ohio; and the Central City Stars from the Colorado Vintage Base Ball Association.  On Saturday, each club plays the other 2 clubs in its pool.  The pool winners as well as one wild card will move on to the championship tournament on Sunday.  Two semi final games followed by the championship and 3rd place game will follow.

    I am extremely excited to be coming to the 2011 tournament as a member of the Cincinnati Buckeyes. Have visited Gettysburg before, but to be part of the historical recreation of base ball is an honor to be added to my list of base ball firsts. Base ball and history are 2 of my favorite things. See you all there. Doc
