Vintage Base Ball

  • Sandy Hooks Beat Providence At Its Own Game

    The local vintage nine closed out its ninth regular season on a recent Saturday as the Newtown Sandy Hooks vintage base ball team swept a doubleheader from the 1884 Providence Grays on a spectacular day at Fort Adams in Newport, RI. The annual event in America’s First Resort is a highlight of Newtown’s season and all hands greet the day with vigor and expectation.

    Both the early 1860’s affair as well as the later 1884 main event featured riveting athleticism and field play that kept the assembled cranks awestruck and engaged.
