The Ohio Village Muffins are a group of enthusiastic lovers of the game who carry on the tradition of the sport as it was played in mid-nineteenth-century America. The first thing we tell people new to “vintage” base ball is that, historically, “base ball” was two words. This is important because we like to do everything as the base ball players of 1860 did it: We play by their rules, dress in their uniforms, and exemplify their gentlemanly behavior.
Games are played against other vintage teams from Ohio and across the country, as well as teams of local community members. Each season the Muffins play over 40 matches and travel all over Ohio and out-of-state. The home field for the Muffins, Muffins Meadow, is in the Ohio Village, and many games are held there each summer. Everyone is welcome to come and cheer on all the participants during these family-friendly events. Before, during and after the games, various members of the team are available to answer questions about the differences between the game of the 1860s and the game of today.
