Vintage Baseball in Lanesboro - 1860’s Style


Fri, Aug 9th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Sports

Baseball – the way it was played in the mid-1800’s – comes to Lanesboro, Minn. Saturday, Sept. 14, at 4 p.m. Sponsored by the Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce, this free event features the Quickstep Baseball Club of Minneapolis-St. Paul versus the Excelsiors, Lanesboro’s own vintage team, coached by Gordon Tindall. The game will be played at the Lanesboro Softball Field.

The game will feature historic rules and uniforms. No gloves were worn back then and the only umpire was behind home plate. The catcher received the pitch on a bounce and filed disputes were resolved in a “gentlemanly manner.” This game will observe those rules and many others, very much unlike what we see in today’s play.

In a more up-to-date feature, the umpire will describe the rules and the manner of play to the fans in the stands.

The Lanesboro Excelsiors are comprised of local residents who are playing for the love of the game and its history. Gordon Tindall coaches the team. He loves baseball and as a boy, was fortunate to have seen the Brooklyn Dodgers play at Ebbets Field in New York City.

This event is FREE and is a part of Lanesboro’s contribution to “Taste of the Trail,” an offering of events in each of the towns along the Root River State Trail in September. Fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as the bleacher seating is limited. Snacks and soft drinks will be available.

For more information, please contact: Dave Harrenstein, Events Coordinator, Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce, 507-467-3321, events@lanesboro.com
