Many of you may know that we have another multi-talented individual on this forum (besides me ).
One of our resident mods, Chip, plays 2B/pitches for a traditional 1869 baseball team, based out of Cincy, called the Cincinnati Buckeyes.
They travelled up my way today to play a local team, the Champion City Reapers, outside of West Liberty, Ohio.
The Buckeyes won pretty 13-4.
I took my 10 yr old son Samuel down to watch, and we also met up with the ever lovely Kitty Duran.
It was a beautiful day, and we all really enjoyed ourselves immensely watching how they played baseball in the mid 19th century.
I also was very impressed with the knowledge the players on each team had concerning the rules, customs, and how some of today's baseball terminology came into existence. It was a very educational experience.
If anyone ever has a chance to go to one of these games, they will not regret it one bit.
I'm pretty sure this is the website....
Chipster was definitely in form. Everyone has a nickname. Kitty said that Chip's is Leadfoot. I kept calling him Leadbelly!
But running the bases Kitty and I decided that we now know what happened to Dante Bichette!
But he does play a smart 2B.
Here are some pics....
