There's still a little time left this summer to catch a vintage base ball game in the Silver Base Ball Park at Genesee Country Village and Museum. Matches at GCVM are played according to the rules adopted on December 14, 1864, by the National Association of Base-Ball Players in New York — meaning no gloves, woolen uniforms, brown balls, umpires in top hats, and period-correct field, bleachers, press box, and vendors selling peanuts. The program also includes two women's teams.
GCVM, 1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford, hosts vintage base ball games on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September (with playoff matches happening in early October). Tickets to the games are included in the museum admission price ($18 adults; $15 students and seniors; $10 children; free for members). 538-6822; gcv.org.
