Vintage Base Ball All-Stars gathered on Sunday September 26, 2021 for the 4th John Phillip Martin All-Star Series to benefit ALS Patient Care at historic Muzzy Field in Bristol Connecticut.

The familiar format of a three game set will be in order under the rules, customs & equipment of 1864. The All-Stars, selected by their peers, will broke off into teams “Daniel” and “Lucius” as an homage to Daniel Lucius “Doc” Adams, an early baseball pioneer and New England native who is once again expected to appear on the Early Baseball Era Committee ballot for enshrinement in baseball’s Hall of Fame.

In addition to remembering John Martin, the influential NESN videographer who succumbed to ALS in 2018, the program of honors memorialized Marjorie Putnam Adams of Connecticut (a great-granddaughter of Doc Adams), Paul Salomone of New Jersey (baseball organizer and proponent of early baseball reenactment), and Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe (2020 BWAA Career Excellence Award Winner).
