St. Croixs hit the road

Interested members of “The Bullpen,” above, watch a St. Croix Base Ball Club player wait his turn to bat at a recent game. St. Croix’s member Brent Peterson, left, argues a call with an umpire at a game. The St. Croix Base Ball Club, an educational program of the Washington County Historical Society, plays the Milwaukee Cream Citys Saturday and Sunday at Pioneer Village in Cameron, Wis. The Pioneer Village is operated by the Barron County Historical Society and is the site for five games involving vintage base ball clubs that play by 1860 rules. Some of those rules were that players play without gloves; the batter is out if the ball is caught on the fly or first bounce; the pitcher pitches the ball to where the batter wants it, and there are no called balls or strikes. For more information about the St. Croix Base Ball Club, contact the WCHS at 651-439-5956 or visit www.wchsmn.org and click into the Vintage Base Ball section to find the 2013 schedule.
