Elkton, Mechanicsburg to Play in Gettysburg October 20

The Elkton Eclipse and the Mechanicsburg Nine will be in town in Gettysburg on Saturday, October 20th as part of the Adams County Fall Classic Road Rally 2012.  They will be playing a match just like would have been played in 1864 in Gettysburg using the same style uniforms and equipment and playing by the same rules and customs of the mid 19th century.  The match will take place starting at noon at Straban Township Parks & Recreation Park .  It is located at 100 Smith Road , Gettysburg , PA 17325. 

The Eclipse and Mechancisburg are 2 of the 3 champions crowned at this past season’s Gettysburg 19th Century Base Ball Festival which takes place the 3rd weekend in July each year in Gettysburg featuring clubs from all over the country.  If you didn’t get your festival t-shirt in July, there are a few left and the Eclipse will have them there as well as some information about next year’s event.
