Old Timers’ vintage baseball tournament action will return to the Cy Young Days Festival on Sunday, June 24, starting at 10 a.m. at Cy Young Park.
Four teams will be involved, Canal Dover Redlegs, Mohican Rivermen, Whiskey Island Shamrocks and the local Newcomerstown Cyclones. Come journey back in time to a day when life was a little slower and gentleman dressed in wool caps, knickers and high stockings. ?This is a re-creation of the way the national pastime was played in the mid-1800's, using the same rules and language of the era during the days of the Civil War. ?
A Snow Cone vendor and the Newcomerstown Masonic Lodge will have a food stand set up. In addition to bleachers being provided, feel free to bring a chair or a blanket to sit on and spend a relaxing Sunday watching Base Ball. Brush up on your Old Timers’ rules, the spectators are also part of the game! There is also a special guest appearance this year.
