Back in the 1860s -- the era from which vintage ball rules are derived -- men wore long-sleeved white shirts, knickers, stockings, caps and bow ties to play base ball (which was still two words). The handmade base balls were larger and slightly softer than today's version. Fines for "ungentlemanly behavior" were 25 cents a week.
Stan Hywet Hall also sponsors a women's team, Akron Lady Locks Base Ball Club.
