Interested in Playing for Gettysburg?

The 2013 Gettysburg 19th Century Base Ball Festival has come and gone and we have already started planning for the 5th one on July 19 and 20, 2014.  You don’t have to wait that long to get your 19th century base ball fix though!   A standing club is forming in Gettysburg that will play a full schedule in 2014 in the Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League with its home games in Gettysburg.  If you are interested in playing for the new club or helping out in any way please contact us at elktonbase_ball@yahoo.com and we’ll get you over to the right people.  Players are generally between the ages of 21 to 70 and they don’t have to be former professional players or all star softball players!  Each age range has a different skill set that is needed to make the club successful–younger guys can run and hit the ball further, while older guys can place the ball in holes and gaps which was a big part of the 19th century game.  The season runs from early April until the end of October and most teams play a couple of days each month.  You don’t even have to commit to 100% of your games as well!    If you have any interest, please contact us so we can get the club up and running in time for 2014! 

They will also be looking for umpires, score keepers, and other sideline people as well as “front office” positions. If you ever wanted to work (voluteer) in baseball, this is your chance!
