Vintage Game - 2011

The third annual Vintage Baseball Doubleheader between fans of the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum in Greenville, SC and the Ty Cobb Museum in Royston,GA was held Saturday, October 22,  2011, at Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Park in Greenville.

1860’s rules and terminology were enforced by the "judge,” including no gloves, no cleats, and no helmets. 

 

With catches on first bounce counting as outs and no walks, the emphasis of these vintage games is on hitting, base-running and defense.

 

 

The “Shoeless Joes” were able to win both games but all fans and players had a wonderful day of fun and fellowship. 

Thanks to players, fans, sponsors and volunteers of both museums in making this third Vintage Game between the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and the Ty Cobb Museum such a rousing success!
