Chesapeake and Potomac First Nine 

July 15th, 2006

Welcome to our web site!

The Chesapeake and Potomac Base Ball Club is recreating the game and the style of play that our region’s baseball pioneers discovered and did so much to give to America. Won't you consider joining us?

The Cincinnati Red Stockings. The New York Mutuals. The Indianapolis Blues. The Milwaukee Cream Citys. The great teams of yesterday are the great teams of today in Vintage Base Ball. For more than a decade, the sport of Vintage Base Ball has been growing throughout New England, New York state, Ohio, the Midwest, and even California. But Washington and Baltimore, among the first cities to embrace the New York game in the 1850s and 1860s, have been left out of the old game’s modern renaissance for too long. The founding members of the Chesapeake and Potomac Base Ball Club were all members of SABR, and the club is working with historians, experts, institutions like the Babe Ruth Museum and the Alexandria Historical Society, and dozens of existing Vintage Base Ball teams to create an organization that all of Baltimore and Washington can be proud of.

For the love of the game
