Some Old Time Baseball

Today I shot some photos during the baseball game between the Providence Grays and The Essex Base Ball Club in Salem. The two teams are vintage baseball groups that play by the rules and customs of 1861 baseball. No gloves, no helmets. Pretty neat.

Old Timey bats!

A Gray heads to first. In this game, if the hit was caught after one bounce, the batter's out.

Watching from the sidelines.

Even the umpire's dress the part.

The Hurler (pitcher).
