Vintage baseball swings into season

The Emporia Vintage Baseball Club is in need of a few good players and spectators.


The club had their exhibition game and try-outs last weekend, but new members are always accepted, and people are encouraged to attend the games.

The club is operated by members of the Lyon County Historical Society. Public Education Director Nancy Boyce says this game is played by the 1800s baseball rules, including not using baseball gloves and wearing the traditional heavier uniforms. Boyce says it's an important thing to preserve.

Boyce says this season's schedule includes a good mix of home and away games. This Saturday's game is in Topeka at 1pm. Carpooling is encouraged.
