Join us for the Fourth Annual Tournament! Come see what a 19th Century base ball (yes, it used to be two words) match was like before million dollar contracts, television and gloves!  Featuring clubs from all over the United States who will compete for the tournament championship using the same style uniforms and equipment and playing by the same rules and customs as were used in 1864. Family fun for everyone.The 2013 edition will again include teams from all over the country.  Fans coming out to the free event will not only witness base ball as it was played in 1864, but there may also be special guests in attendance - in the past, President Lincoln, General Grant, General Lee and a whole host of Gettysburg Civilians have attended to watch the games and show you what life was like outside of the War in 1864. Bring your own chairs and blanket as well as a picnic lunch or enjoy some of our concessions that will be available.
