Join the fun while experiencing America’s game as it was played in 1864. The Knoxville Holstons take on the Emmett's Machinists, May 8, 2:00 PM! Don't forget your lawn chair and umbrella for shade! This free public event is enjoying its 8th season and Historic Ramsey House is proud to be a part of this historic reenactment.  The players play by 1864 rules, wear period uniforms and our local Knoxville teams bear the names of actual teams that existed in Knoxville during that time. The Knoxville Holstons and Emmett’s Machinists play other vintage league teams from around the state.  The league has been in existence for 7 years and has grown from two teams to 12!

On each game day, we will have a themed kids craft and game area available! Crafts will be only $5 per child, and the game area is free! This week’s theme is Mother’s Day! Kids will be able to paint a clay pot and plant a beautiful flower for their special Mother or Grandmother! For this year's Vintage Base Ball season, we are hosting food trucks as well. Knox Wurst will be on site to provide delicious eats!
