Old Fashioned Baseball This Weekend

Thought that no Philadelphia baseball teams had a shot to win a title this year? Think again. The Athletic Club of Philadelphia will be taking on teams from all across the region in the grand old game of Base-Ball. Playing by rules set down in 1864, they will take on all comers at the Navy Yard this weekend. In addition to the baseball, Shibe Sports will have a table set up with our gear at sale prices, as well as a couple of brand new shirts for sale, and there will be BBQ offered by Phoebe’s and ice cream from Franklin Fountain. Games run from 10-4 both Saturday and Sunday.

CHeck out this interview I just did with the President of the Athletic Club of Philadelphia to learn more about baseball 150 years ago. And go here to learn more about the event itself. I’ll be down there both days, so if you want to hang out and watch some baseball, come on down!
