For instance, there is no swearing, no spitting and no “ungentlemanly” behavior anywhere during the games. Historical commentary will be provided by longtime ballplayer and sports broadcaster Steven Knauth of Ivoryton to help the audience understand base ball rules of the 1850s. Ballists (players) will use replica equipment – authentic reproduction wooden bats and hand-sewn hard balls. No gloves are worn. Each team will be wearing specially purchased shirts and hats, representative of their different towns’ uniforms from the 19th century. Raindate will be 9/28.
