Scores for 2014 Event Posted

The official scores for each game from the 2014 Festival are now in the books.  Look at the page on the website entitled 2014 for results (or click here). Some great action took place over the weekend with some of the finest clubs ever put together in one place.  Great vintage clubs like the Brooklyn Atlantics, New York Mutuals, Cincinnati Red Stockings, Providence Grays, Saginaw Old Golds, Talbot Fair Plays and Elkton Eclipse were all in one place along with some fantastic other clubs as well.

In the end, only one club made it out undefeated and that was the New York Gothams going 4-0.  The Brooklyn Atlantics ended up 4-1 while the Eckfords, Elkton, Talbot, Southern Delaware, and Forest City each ended the weekend 3-1.  While everyone played to win, the main focus on the weekend was to play some great 19th century vintage base ball from all different years against opponents you have never seen or haven’t seen in a long while while renewing friendships forged over the many years of playing 19th century base ball.

Hats off to every club who came to town.  It was a gathering that will not be soon forgotten by the fans who came to the Festival or the clubs who played in it!

Hurrah!
