Motor Muster / Historic Base Ball Match
Time & Location
About The Event
Onn Sunday, June 20, 2021 JAGM will have an informal gathering at Greenfield Village, featuring the Village's annual Motor Muster car show and an 1867 Base Ball match.
The Motor Muster 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. Tickets go on sale May 26th. Because this is a popular event, early ticket purchase is recommended. Parking fee is $6.
Members of The Henry Ford are required to make a reservation for this event.
