Vintage Baseball Game

Waveland State Historic Site will host a vintage base ball game on Sunday, May 17, between the Losantiville Black Stockings and the Norwood Highlanders. Come enjoy a day of history, food and of course, the good old American pastime – baseball – as it was in the 1860s!

The players will dress in accurately-recreated uniforms, with equipment made only to standards of the period. They will use the rules, customs and terminology of baseball’s earliest days, creating an educational, historic and fun environment that anyone can enjoy.

The game starts at 2 p.m. Tickets for adults are $5, children ages 7-12 are $1 and children 6 and under are free. Tickets include a walking tour of the historic home.

Antebellum house with three original outbuildings - slave quarters, smokehouse and ice house. Guided tours focus on the everyday lives of family and slaves who lived and worked at Waveland.
