The 2022 Annual Doc Adams Old Time Base Ball Festival was held on 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. This year’s festival once again lived up its reputation as a must see for baseball fans, history buffs, and anyone looking for a day of outdoor fun.
It was a hot and humid weekend; however, a nice breeze provided a little relief, which both the ballists and cranks appreciated. Ballists, both artists and muffins, and cranks alike had a great time and as enjoyed the debut of The Knickerbocker Experience.
Nancy Adams Downey was on hand to enjoy the festivities and share stories about her great-grandfather.

Hopefully, the long-overlooked founding father of the National Pastime will be recognized and enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2022 (next election takes place in December).
This was the first appearance of The Knickerbocker Experience at the Festival.
