“COVENTRY (AP) — Two periods of American history will come together next month during an unusual baseball doubleheader in Connecticut.
The Nathan Hale Homestead is hosting the vintage baseball exhibition on June 30th.
The Bouckville Summits and the Providence Grays, two teams from the Mid-Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League, will play in a field at the birthplace of the Revolutionary War spy.
The rules and equipment will be authentic to those used in 1864. The balls are hand-stitched and the bats used are heavier and longer than modern ones.
Sponsors say it will be a “gentlemen’s game,” with cursing resulting in a 25-cent fine and an apology to the spectators.
The Hale Homestead is situated on 17 acres, adjoining the 1,500-acre Nathan Hale State Forest.”
We will be playing in the CT Vintage Base Ball Day event at Cove Park in Wethersfield on May 19th. This event will feature all of the currently active vintage base ball teams in CT as well as players from currently inactive teams.
Here is our schedule for 2018. One of our regular opponents, the Lisbon Tunnelmen, is taking the season off so our schedule is smaller than in previous seasons. There’s still a chance we may add more games but these games are definite.

It has been a tough off-season with regard to our roster. Jim Wyman, our long-time first baseman, has retired as have Jason Wainio and Tim Driscoll. We’re sad to see them go. We also have three more players who are out for the entire 2018 season with injuries. As a result, we’re looking to add more players to our roster. The Lisbon Taverners were force to take this season off due to the same issue. We’re hoping to convince some of their players to join us for this season but we’re always looking for new recruits.
