Motor Muster and Historic Base Ball Match
Time & Location
About The Event
Onn Saturday, June 20, JAGM will have an informal gathering at Greenfield Village, featuring the Village's annual Motor Munster car show and an 1867 Base Ball match.
The Motor Muster, which runs both Saturday and Sunday, features cars, trucks and military vehicles from 1933 to 1978. Typically there are hundreds of vehicles, parked and driving all around the Village from 9:30 am to 9 pm. The historic base ball (it was two words back then) match will be played with the rules and equipment (or lack thereof) from 1867, many things are the same, but many are noticeably different, such as the underhand pitching and bare-handed catching. The match starts at 1:30 pm and takes about 2 hours. I expect to be playing, but I'll have plenty of time during the match to visit and sign autographs (no charge for JAGM members!).
Come to the Village anytime and spend as long as you like. Admission: non-member is #28 adult, $25.25 senior (62+), $21 youth (5-11), and children 4 and under free. Parking is $6. Note:" Check out getting a membership if you think you'll visit the Henry Ford again with a year.
