Duke Homestead Vintage Base Ball Game
The Duke Homestead Education and History Corporation will host its second annual vintage baseball game at the historic Durham Athletic Park on Saturday, August 3 at 7 pm. The team representing Duke Homestead (named the Durham station lucky strikes) will play a team composed of local media members.
Both teams will play according to 1860 rules and all players will wear uniforms of that time period. Food trucks will be on site, along with a concession stand featuring old fashioned refreshments such as peanuts, cracker jacks, sunflower seeds, and other snacks. Historic children’s games will also be played in the stands during the game.
