Vintage Baseball
Jesse King / WAMC

This year is the 150th anniversary of professional baseball, dating back to the launch of the Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1869. As today’s major league teams battle for a spot in the playoffs, “vintage baseball teams” across the U.S. like to celebrate the game as it was played in its formative years. WAMC’s Jesse King caught a recent doubleheader between the Fleischmanns Mountain Athletic Club and the Brooklyn Atlantics.
