Ground Squirrels Vintage Baseball Team. August 23rd,playing the Stags, at Noon. In vintage base ball, 1860s variety, winning is secondary. Having fun is most important. Vintage base ball has attracted both men and women for its slower pace, unique rules, showmanship, civility and good sportsmanship. Its all about friendship and having fun and showing people how baseball was played away back when. The Ground Squirrels club commonly plays by the rules of 1858. The friendly confines of beautiful Trobaugh Field have hosted the team nine home games and the field is perhaps one of the truest representations of an 1860-ers field in the modern game of vintage base ball. Macon Co. Conservation Dist., 3939 Nearing Lane Decatur IL For all team news, game date/time changes and more information on away games follow the team on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GroundSquirrels
