Vintage Baseball: Honor Our Veterans

Who’s ready for another exciting day of Vintage Base Ball?!

In partnership with the Veterans Heritage Site Foundation, we are taking the time to show our special thanks to all veterans on this day! Throughout this triple header, Veterans will be able to participate in various “games”, activities, and receive special recognition. A pinning ceremony for the “Welcome Home 50th Year Commemorative Pin” for Vietnam Veterans will take place after the first game. All veterans will receive a free combo meal at the concession stand, as well as a complimentary tour of the Historic Ramsey House, which will be open from 10:00-4:00.

**If you are apart of a Veteran Organization and would like to set up a booth at this event, please contact Marilyn Childress at or call 678-920-1989.

Triple Header Schedule
11:00 Lightfoot Club of Chattanooga vs. Knoxville Holstons

This is a FREE event for the entire family! Concessions will be available, and all proceeds will go directly to the ongoing preservation of Historic Ramsey House. Make sure to bring your own chair and a shady umbrella or tent.

About the League
The Tennessee Vintage Base Ball Association promotes living history by bringing the 19th century to life through baseball events that use the rules, equipment, costumes and culture of the 1860s. Their goal is to exemplify, to youth and adults alike, the values that are lacking in modern-day athletic programs, and encourage a sense of belonging, regardless of race, gender, religious conviction or physical ability.
