On September 25, the Doc Adams Birthplace Classic will make its return in Doc’s hometown as part of Lamson Farm Day. Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams was born in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire on November 1, 1814 to Daniel Adams, MD and Nancy Mulliken Adams. He and his family lived there until 1846 when they moved to Keene, New Hampshire.
The Doc Adams Birthplace Classic is an annual celebration (cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic) of the life and legacy of Dr. Daniel Lucius Adams, an early founder of base ball and native son of Mont Vernon, New Hampshire. This event is being conducted both with and for the many fine players who engage in 19th Century Base Ball in the Northeast and beyond, in support of the push for the rightful enshrinement of Doc Adams in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
So come on down to Lamson Farm, Mont Vernon, New Hampshire, enjoy a great day of vintage 1864 rules base ball and celebrate Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams, M.D.
More details to follow in the upcoming weeks.
