Is there an admission charge?
What can I bring in?
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets even tents for shade! If you want to bring a picnic basket go ahead or enjoy great food from Uncle Moes and ice cream and water ice from Brusters!
Do you guys really not wear gloves?
That’s correct! Gloves were very unmanly and did not come in to base ball (two words) until the mid 1880s. We’re playing by the rules and customs of 1864
Can we take pictures?
Absolutely! Ask our players between games or even innings for a personalized picture or come right up to the edge of the field. If you want to send us some that you took, we’d love to have them for publicity next year!
This sounds fun, can I play today?
It is great fun, and we’d love to have you see what its like to catch a ball barehanded between games. During games though, these are 14 of the finest most established clubs in the country so you probably can’t play during a game (unless they are short and need a hand!). If you want to start a club, we’d be more than happy to help you get started. If you are from Gettysburg, we really want to see you as we would love to have a standing team here in the future!
Aren’t you guys hot in the long wool uniforms?
One word- YES!
Are you handicapped accessible?
Well, the games take place in an open field so it kind of depends. We have handicapped parking available and there is a asphalt path leading to Field A.
What if I have a question as to what I am seeing?
You can ask any player or festival official between games and even between innings. There will also be players walking around during the action that will answer any and all questions you may have. You are more than encouraged to ask any question!
