Watch the origins of “America’s Greatest Pastime” by catching a Walnut Hill Bluestockings 1876-rules baseball game. The team, made up of LHF volunteers, follow Gentleman’s rules, which include: no mitts allowed; the batter, or “striker”, gets to call the pitch; and no cussin’ or spittin’. This season we have removed the bleachers. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to watch the game and spread out from other visitors.
We recommend you arrive early to tour the rest of the museum before the game in the afternoon. Game is included with regular admission to Living History Farms.
