Vintage Base Ball Players Wanted

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Macon County Conservation District

Vintage Base Ball

The Rock Springs Ground Squirrels Vintage Base Ball Club is recruiting new players for the upcoming season! In vintage base ball, winning is secondary. It’s about friendship, having fun, and showing people how base ball was played in the 1860s. You don’t even have to be an amazing player to join the team, you only need to enjoy the game. This volunteer opportunity is for guys and gals ages 16 and up. Volunteers must be willing to travel to away games. Games are typically held two Saturdays a month, with a few Sunday games scattered throughout the season. If you have an interest in volunteering with our vintage base ball club, please visit the Ground Squirrels Facebook Page www.facebook.com/GroundSquirrels and message the team or contact Jenny Garver at JGarver@MaconCountyConservation.org or 217-423-7708.
