Description: Take them out to the ballgame. June 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 1860's.
