The 2012 games were played on Saturday, September 8 at Ty Cobb field near the Ty Cobb Museum in Royston, Georgia. Despite our first rain-out ever early in the second game of the doubleheader, all players and fans enjoyed our wonderful day of baseball and fellowship between our two museums.
The 2011 Vintage Games were held in Greenville on October 22 at the Shoeless Joe Jackson Baseball Park at Brandon Mill, where a young Joe Jackson began his baseball career. The weather was spectacular and all players and fans enjoyed a wonderful day of "base ball" and fellowship.
