    I am sure something like that has been done at Cooperstown, but the real draw in my opinion would be trying to play in Hoboken, NJ, where the first official game was played at the Elysian Fields. The closest possible playing ground there would be the field at Stevens Tech. It is a soccer field and artificial turf, but a vintage game played with a low-impact baseball could work there. That location is rather close to where that first game was played and the only place where a window could not possibly be broken in such a heavily urban center.

      I used to play vintage base ball with the Buffalo Gap Chips based out of Buffalo Gap, TX. We were part of the local historic village's living history program. We had another team called the Abilene 407s. Sometimes we would pool players when we traveled or hosted a tourney and we'd all be Chips, or we'd all be 407s. If not, we played each other. We played a mix of 1860 and 1884 rules.

      A blast! That was years ago. I'm the guy in red. Would love to do it again.
