Vintage Base Ball Returns to Fort Mackinac

Vintage base ball returns to Fort Mackinac Saturday, July 21, when the Fort Mackinac Never-Sweats will face the Mackinaw City Boys at 6:30 p.m. on the field behind Fort Mackinac.

The game is played with 1800s rules and uniforms, much as it used to be played here.

Soldiers at Fort Mackinac were playing the new popular sport of base ball as early as 1817 and formed a club in 1885.

Tickets cost $4 for adults, $2 for children ages five through 12, and are free for children four and under.
