Oregon Ganymedes Vintage Baseball Game

 Sunday, July 28 at 1:00 pm the Oregon Ganymedes Vintage Baseball team will take on the Chicago Salmon @ Chana School Museum Field in Oregon. During vintage baseball games teams play by the early rules of 1858 through 1867 when players did not wear gloves and gentlemanly behavior and good sportsmanship was the norm.

The all-volunteer club is an educational outreach program of the Chana School Museum that teaches the early roots of the game of baseball. The club plays other vintage clubs from Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio and Michigan. Home games are played on the lawn of the Chana School Museum at Oregon Park East in Oregon.  The team got its name from Oregon’s Ganymede Spring that was named by the famous Margaret Fuller when she visited Oregon in 1843.
