Vintage Base Ball | July
Join The Hermitage for a fun day of baseball with the Nashville Vintage Base Ball League!
Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy some old-fashioned ball games on the Hermitage grounds.
The Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball was established in 2012 to entertain and educate our communities by recreating the civility of 19th-century baseball.
They promote living history by bringing the 19th-century to life through base ball events that use the rules, equipment, costumes and culture of the 1860s. They provide cultural enrichment and education programs and activities to youth and adults that emphasize honor, team play, respectful conduct and community pride. Their goal is to exemplify to youth and adults alike the values that are lacking in modern-day athletic programs, and encourage a sense of belonging regardless of race, gender, religious conviction or physical ability.
In addition to monthly living history events during the playing season, they do demonstrations and workshops for youth and senior groups, museums, historical societies, corporations and others year-round. These programs are designed to provide history in a fun as well as educational manner; develop team-building skills; and/or for pure entertainment.
