Labor Day Vintage Baseball Game

September 02 | 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Monday, September 2, 2019
10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (First pitch 1 p.m.)

The highlight of Labor Day is our annual vintage base ball match between the Camp Creek Cloud Busters (your home team) and the 1882 Denver & Rio Grande Reds. The Cloud Busters is no “farm team,” but needs your support to cheer them on to victory! The first pitch will be at 1:00 p.m.

This game is vintage rules: no one wears a mitt or glove (except the catcher) and “cranks” (that’s you, the spectators) can influence the umpire’s call in your team’s favor!

Picnics are welcome, but don’t miss the opportunity to sip a cold cream soda or root bear available for purchase at the General Store. Vendors will be here to supply hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream as well. Visit the Historic Homes throughout the site. It may be the end of summer, but not the fun!

“Base ball is the very symbol of the outward and visible expression of the drive and push of the raging, tearing, booming 19th Century.”

– Mark Twain​
