The 25th installment of the Annual Doc Adams Old Time Base Ball Festival will take place next weekend, August 6-7, at Old Bethpage Village Restoration.
In 2015, this longest running annual vintage base ball festival of its kind was renamed in honor of Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams. The festival is a must for baseball fans, history buffs, and anyone looking for a a day of outdoor fun.
Nancy Adams Downey, a great-granddaughter of Doc Adams, will be on-hand on Saturday.
If you are in the area, come on down and step back in time and watch how base ball was played in its infancy.
If you’re not in the immediate area, its worth the trip. Don’t miss it, it’s fun for the whole family. This is always a great event!
This year, The Kickerbocker Experience will be making its first appearance at the festival. The club’s goal is to provide a memorable “Experience” that honors Doc Adams and the Knickerbockers.
