Spiegel Grove Squires have back-to-back August home games

FREMONT — The Spiegel Grove Squires, the vintage base ball team at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, will play home games the next two Sundays.

Both games begin at 2 p.m. and will take place on the lawn behind the historic Hayes Home. Admission is free.

Sunday the Squires will play the Canton Cornshuckers and Aug. 25, they will play the Canal Dover Red Legs.

The Squires bring to life the sport in the 1860s, when it became organized with standard rules of play for clubs. Back then, base ball was spelled with two words.

The Squires are volunteers. They have studied and learned the methods of play used in the 1860s, including playing bare-handed. Players are called ballists, and they wear period-style uniforms and adopt the language of 19th-century base ball during their matches, as the games were called during the 1860s.
