Description: Take them out to the ballgame. Summer was a time when Long Island farmers, tradesmen, and shopkeepers would spend leisurely afternoons playing the young and emerging "American Game" - Baseball. Today, Long Island Vintage Baseball Clubs turn out each Sunday at Old Bethpage Village Restoration to play 19th-century-rules baseball in the uniforms, style, and rules of the 1860s. The games run through September 30, 2012.
