The teams of the Essex Base Ball Association play baseball using 1860s rules. At these fun, historically accurate games, players pitch underhand, a ball bounced once and caught is an out, and no gloves are allowed. Snacks, baseballs, and cards are available for purchase.

Grass field seating: bring blankets and lawn chairs, no reserved seating. In partnership with the Essex Base Ball Association and Ipswich Ale Brewery.
