Here comes the ball

Here comes the ball

At Old Bethpage Village Reconstruction on Long Island, they support a league for people interested in Old Time Baseball. I understand from one of the players that this is based on baseball as it existed in 1880. The most obvious difference is that nobody has a glove except for the catcher. With the 4 second delay in my digital camera, I had to work very much ahead, and got lucky on this one to catch the ball in flight.
