RIVER EDGE, N.J. – The Bergen County Historical Society will host a vintage baseball double-header in River Edge on Saturday.
The Flemington Neshanocks will face off against the New York Mutuals during the historical society’s 5th Annual Old-Time Game. The game will be played in the meadow at Historic New Bridge Landing.
Spectators can “experience the crack of wood against leather, the cheers and jeers of the crowd (cranks), and baseball the way great-grandpa saw it, when these two teams play with 19th century rules, equipment, and uniforms in an open field,” according to the historical society.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 8. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for Bergen County Historical Society members.
