National Road Bicentennial Celebration
Vintage Base Ball Match a Hit
The National Road Bicentennial Celebration at Morristown on July 29, 2006 featured activities for the whole family. One of those activities, a vintage base ball match, was a genuine hit with players and spectators alike. The game was a matchup between the Ohio Village Muffins from the Ohio Historical Society and the Morristown Nationals, a team of local players. The 9-inning game was played by the rules of 1860, including period clothing. The Muffins won the matchup 26-7. The vintage game was played on the baseball diamond at Union Local High School. Real Life Church sold hot dogs, Cracker Jacks and other refreshments at the game.
The National Road Bicentennial Celebration was hosted by the Morristown Historic Preservation Association.
