To our members: You will note that this post was submitted a month ago. As it is not time-sensitive, it is being published today.

Regretfully, due to an editorial snafu, other messages, which were time sensitive, did not get sent along in January. The editorial team at H-New Jersey very much regrets this. Sincerest apologies to all.

Venue Needed in Princeton Area for Vintage Base Ball Event Saturday, 9/24

History and Base Ball Enthusiasts,

Four 19th Century Base Ball Clubs who play by 1864 rules and use period uniforms and equipment, are looking for a venue in the Princeton, NJ area for their four game event on Saturday 9/24. 

All that is needed is an open field or fields that can accomodate two matches simultaneously. Each field should be about the size of a high school baseball field.  An enthusiastic crowd is also requested.
