The good-old days of baseball, when players were “ballists,” fans were “cranks” and “base ball” was two words, are back Saturday, July 19, at Fort Verde State Historical Park.
“We truly are living history,” said Lance Busch, president and commissioner of the Arizona Territories Vintage Base Ball League. “Frankly, the Fort Verde parade field is probably one of the most authentic, true-to-period fields that we get to play on throughout the year.”
Both Busch and Fort Verde State Park Manager Sheila Stubler are actively seeking local players for the Excelsiors, which will otherwise consist largely of players from Phoenix.
