The Wyandotte Stars, Wyandotte's very own vintage baseball team, are set to take on the Henry Ford Lah-De-Dahs and the Greenfield Village Nationals at noon Aug. 31 at Memorial Field, 23rd Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.
There is no admission for this event.
There are some major differences between baseball now and baseball in 1867, which is what makes the Stars so great. The Stars play period-correct baseball by the rules laid out in 1867.
Here's a list of five things to know about the Wyandotte Stars and vintage baseball from 1867:
1. Baseball rules in 1867 stated there was no mitts, no sliding and no cursing.
2. The Wyandotte Stars is a volunteer historic and vintage baseball club that recreates the rules and customs in baseball during the 19th century.
3. The Wyandotte Stars are a yearlong program of the Wyandotte Museums.
4. The Wyandotte Stars travel throughout the region playing baseball against other vintage baseball teams, while serving as ambassadors of Wyandotte.
5. This is the fifth anniversary of the Homes Classic, and is expected to be the Wyandotte Stars' largest home game of the season.
