Lanesboro Excelsiors

Coming on the heels of an 8-2 victory over the Minneapolis Quicksteps, the Lanesboro Excelsiors would like to “pitch” the following message to area residents:

Interested parties wanting to sport vintage 1860 Base Ball in the following communities – Houston, Rushford, Peterson, Whalan, Fountain, Preston and Harmony - please contact Gordon Tindall, “Pops”, either by phone at 507-467-2202, or stop by the diner in Lanesboro. Gordie shares this history in an effort to recruit area Base Ball players.

On September 14, sporting period uniforms and old-style rules and regulations, the Excelsiors suited up at the Lanesboro softball field amongst a full house of spectators.

The Chatfield Brass Band provided house music, former local baseball legend Orville Amdahl shared a few words about playing baseball in his day, and handouts of 1860 rules and regulations were distributed by a woman donned in period dress.

If any of this sounds intriguing to you and your fellow Base Ball friends, please contact Gordie, “Pops”, as mentioned.

Let’s “Play Ball” next summer in the “Root River League!”

P.S. Over-the-hill players welcomed. That’s what most of us are!
