The Doc Adams Old Time Base Ball Festival returns next week. The Festival is a celebration of the origins of our National Pastime. Games are played by different rules from various years spanning 1845-93.
The 24th Doc Adams Old Time Base Ball Festival will take place at Old Bethpage Village Restoration on July 31-August 1. The longest running Vintage Base Ball festival of its kind was renamed in honor of Doc Adams in 2015. This is an important year as hopefully Doc will be elected by the Early Base Ball Era Committee in December for induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2022.
Doc Adams’ great grandaughter, Nancy Adams Downey will be in attendance on Saturday, Juy 31.
It’s loads of fun for the whole family!
