Last year, the 7th Annual Gettysburg National 19th Century Base Ball Festival featured 18 clubs from Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Over 275 players and their families visited Gettysburg for 2 days of vintage base ball the same way it was played in 1863 using the same style uniforms and equipment and playing by the same rules of that year.
