Vintage Baseball Aug. 14 At DAP

A Duke Homestead team (players TBA) will play Fair Play 9, a traveling vintage baseball team from Ohio, Saturday, Aug. 14, at 6 p.m. at Historic Durham Athletic Park (DAP) in a salute to vintage or old-time baseball. Tick­ets are $5/person at the gate (cash only) starting at 5:30. Advance tickets are available on­line from eventbrite.com with service charge.

Players will wear historic uniforms, follow historic rules and use historic equipment. Old fashioned concessions—food and beer—will be sold. Historic music will be featured.

A similar game was played several years ago on a summer Sunday afternoon at the DAP featuring a Triangle celebrity/media team with the old-time baseball rules explained as the game progressed. It’s a fundraiser for the Duke Homestead Historic Site in Durham. Last year’s game was canceled by the pandemic.
