Play Ball!

From Jon Van Hoek

The Monitor Base Ball Club of Chelsea invites you to the first home match of the 8th season in town taking place Sunday, May 27th, at 2pm from Timber Town Park on Sibley Road.  The Monitors will be welcoming friends, the Union BBC of Dexter.  All are invited, no charge for admission.  Please bring lawn chairs and pack some refreshments.

Enjoy a fun glimpse of the history of our nation’s pastime played by its original set of rules. This is an exciting game of 1860-rules base ball played by friends and neighbors and filled with action, hustle and sportsmanship.

We invite you to get involved this year—come root at some matches, come practice with us, come take photos or play music or keep score or dress up. There are lots of ways to be a part of this unique community project.
