Monitors Base Ball Club v. Detroit Early Risers
August 23, 2014 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Take the Family Out To a Ball Game!
The Monior Base Ball Club’s mission is to create an authentic demonstration of 1860’s-era base ball. This a gentlemanly pastime enjoyed by competitive, yet sportsmanlike clubs of ballists (players). Ballists emphasize camaraderie and community, fellowship and family, history and hustle.
As an extension of the non-profit Chelsea Area Historical Society, the Monitors aim to promote interest in the history of our nation’s pastime, the city of Chelsea and its history. Indeed, the Monitor club resurrects an actual ball club by the same name from Chelsea’s early years. We hope to transport our cranks (fans) back to a simpler time. Huzzah!
Home matches are played at Timbertown Park, Sibley Road, just west of M-52 on the northside of beautiful downtown Chelsea.
