The Fleischmanns Mountain Athletic Club (M.A.C.) and the Mudville Base Ball Club from the Boston played a lively doubleheader of 1860’s style baseball. The recent heat wave broke just in time and made the day even more enjoyable for ballists and cranks alike.
Collin Miller raised awareness of the contributions of Daniel Lucius “Doc” Adams, MD to our National Pastime and why he should be in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Making the event even more special, Nancy Adams Downey, a great-granddaughter of Doc Adams, was on hand to watch the festivities and share stories about Doc and her sister Marjorie Adams.
Doc related ephemera was on display at the event and Miller sported a custom-tailored replica uniform reminiscent of what Doc wore for the K.B.B.C. in the 1840s and 50s.
There was a nice turnout for the event and although the cranks were in attendance to enjoy the performance of two talented Base Ball Clubs, they also expressed a lot of interest in learning more about Doc Adams.
