About the Day
Come down to see the Essex Base Ball League play an exhibition game, played by the rules used in the 1860’s. Learn how baseball used to be played back in the 1860s, when the umpire would go to the fans for help making a call, and players fielded the ball without gloves! Watch the Essex Base Ball League take on the personas of baseball teams that played in Woburn back in the 1860s. And, watch some of our local celebrities take on the pros in a game like they’ve never played before. Click here to learn more.
