The 2018 Vintage World Series
It's going to be an exciting autumn for vintage base ball! The Vintage 9 Foundation is hard at work planning the next Vintage World Series touranment--which starting in 2018 will become an annual event. And even more exciting: it's going to be an OPEN tournament, allowing teams from all over the world to register.
You don't even have to any have vintage base ball experience to qualify. Simply rally your team and register. This is your chance to step into the pages of history and experience 19th century game--all while supporting charity!
We'll post the dates and details as soon as they are finalized. In the meantime, please help us make this a spectular event by taking our short survey.

This upcoming season will celebrate the 110th birthday of Legend Satchel Paige, who often said:
"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?"
To honor his incredible spirit we are organizing a very special Vintage Legands Showdown for the purpose of raising money to support the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum -- in our humble opinion, one of the greatest tributes to sport's contribution to society. We need to keep this vital part of history alive. So please join us, and join the living Negro Leagues players who will be back out on the field!
Early February, 2018 College Station, Texas
On the campus of Texas A&M Univeristy, College Station is the proud home of Blue Bell Park, a gorgeous blend of modern college baseball with all the honor and tradition for which the Aggies are famous. Also home to the Aggie Corps of Cadets, George H. W. Bush (an exceptional baseball player himself), and the Bush Presidential Library, it's the perfect site to celebrate America's game.
The A&M Baseball team, to celebrate the start of their 2018 season, will host the event and proceeds will benefit American disabled veterans.
