The Gold Country Vintage Base Ball league was formed in 2006 by base ball enthusiasts wanting to bring the origins of today’s modern game back onto the field. It’s more than the old-fashioned uniforms and equipment used by players in the 1880s; it’s the spirit, sportsmanship, etiquette - and yes, some of the outlandishness that characterized the country and the game during this era.This website is designed to provide cranks the opportunity to follow local teams throughout the April - August season, and also to gain a better appreciation for the history of base ball in its formative years. Ballists for all six teams have learned to display their ginger, swing the timber, field with a glove not much bigger than your hand and play by a set of rules with a close resemblence to today’s game, but also with plenty of differences to make it interesting.All games are free admission and cranks of all ages are welcome to come enjoy the fun. Check our schedule and find a game or two to come watch history in the making. Huzzah!
