Yamhill County Historical Society's Vintage Baseball Game

  • 11275 Southwest Durham Lane McMinnville, OR, 97128 United States (map)

You can come enjoy the day with us as player if you are of an average skill level. Not a ball player but still want to participate? We’ve got you covered. If historical facts are your bag, we need people to walk the baselines educating the fans with baseball trivia. A scorekeeper talley's the runs with chalk and board throughout the match, a snake oil salesman is always selling wares, a good waterboy is essential, peanuts and popcorn must be hurled, and old timey musicians entertain between innings. If you can help with any of these volunteer positions, we want you on the Gristmiller Team. Also, in 1866 the spectators, "a fine crowd of CRANKS", are a vocal bunch. All are welcome and period dress is encouraged.

This season we’re having our match on a Saturday, which means the Heritage Center Museum will be open from 10am-4pm for visitors. We welcome you to take a tour of our Yamhill County History between innings.
