Vintage Base Ball Tournament
Saturday, July 12, 2008 - Sunday, July 13, 2008 (times vary)
Old World Wisconsin's home team travels to Trimborn Farm in Greendale to take part in this vintage base ball (the sport was expressed as two names in the 1860s) tournament featuring eight Midwestern teams! The Eagle Diamonds base ball team is Old World Wisconsin's home team. Inspired by a local team organized in 1868, the Diamonds' uniforms, equipment and rules are the same as those of that time.
Venue: Trimborn Farm
View authentic 19th-century farm life and peek inside a lime kiln to discover how limestone was converted to a commercial and agriculture chemical.
