Take Me Out To The Old Timey Ball Game

The Indiana State Museum hosted the Indianapolis Blues and Indianapolis Hoosiers for a game of 1860s baseball on Saturday, July 13. The two vintage baseball clubs squared off on the lawn in front of the museum, encouraging onlookers - known as “cranks” in the 19th century - to give the game a try.
