Also pretty interesting was that we showed up on "Vintage Baseball Sunday." I previously had no idea that such a thing exists. We watched a pretty entertaining game between the Chesapeake & Potomac Baseball Club and the Elkton Eclipse, two (apparently) local vintage ball clubs. I know very little about baseball history but I was not surprised - no balls or strikes, "one bounce rule," and of course....no baseball gloves.
The amount of base stealing was totally ridiculous, with numerous batters hitting to first, and then stealing second.....then stealing third.
My late grandfather, a Brooklyn native, part-time sports writer, and life-long fan of the long-gone New York Giants (baseball club) and the Brooklyn Dodgers, would have been very pleased. The only thing that could have made it more perfect would to have had my grandfather there.....and possibly to have the Two Man Gentleman Band playing in the background.
