Labor Day Vintage Base Ball Game

The highlight of Labor Day is our annual vintage base ball match between the Camp Creek Cloud Busters (your home team) and the STAR Base Ball Club of Colorado Territory. The Cloud Busters are no “farm team,” but needs your support to cheer them on to victory! The first pitch is at 1:00 p.m.

This game is vintage rules: no  spittin’, no swearin’, no gloves.  “Cranks” (the spectators) can influence the umpire’s call in your team’s favor!

“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​
