RIFLE, Colo. — Residents of the E. Dene Moore Care Center came out for a sunny, fall day on Saturday, Sept. 19 at Deerfield Park to watch a vintage baseball game between the Denver Blue Stockings versus the Central City Stars.
The vintage baseball game is played by the same rules and customs from an earlier period in the sports history and players are typically dressed in the uniforms used from the 1850’s, 1860’s and 1880’s.
The styles and speech of the 19th century are also used while playing the vintage baseball game. According to a brochure put out by Grand River Health the Colorado Vintage Base Ball Association (CVBBA), is a non-profit organization founded in 19993 dedicated to the preservation of the history of 19 century bee ball in Colorado and the education of the public through demonstrations, workshops, lectures and living history performances in the form of matches.
