Base Ball Fans Get Ready!

If you like watching baseball, you’re sure to enjoy taking in a vintage base ball (two words in the olden days) game at the Heritage Village Museum.  We are proud to be the home of two vintage base ball teams, the 1869 Redstockings and the Cincinnati Buckeyes! Teams play wearing authentic uniforms, using authentic equipment, and playing by the rules and customs of the day.

The Reds might be playing already, but Opening Day here at the Village is coming up soon. On Sunday, April 29 our two home teams will play their first game of the season! Come out and enjoy the free entertainment and experience base ball as fans did when it was first played.

Cincinnati Buckeyes play at 1:00pm

1869 Redstockings play at 3:00pm
