If baseball is as American as apple pie, then what is vintage baseball? Must be lard in that crust - the old fashioned way with a heritage apple like Northern Spy. If you love baseball then Memorial Day weekend in Fleischmanns is the place you need to be. The local Fleischmanns vintage team - the Mountain Athletic Club - is going for a world record, playing vintage baseball for 49 hours straight. The kick off will be Friday May 27th starting at 5pm in the Village Park. Some country cousins from the Roxbury Nine, Bovina Dairymen will help keep the momentum going and to give the Mountain Athletic players a rest.
video At noon July 18, 2009, an event which hasn't been seen in Bovina since the 1920s took place - a vintage baseball game. The Bovina Dairymen took on the Fleischmann Athletic Mountain Club. In a hard fought game the Fleischmann team came out on top 12-11.
