The Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball Club is pleased to announce the addition of 2 more clubs to the Federal (Eastern) Conference. The Minerva Base Ball Club of Bridgeton, New Jeresey actually started playing a couple of games at the end of the 2013 season and is all set to compete in 2014. The Minerva is a re-start of the actual club that played in the 1860s and competed against first class clubs in Philadelphia. It was started by an insurance group in the 1860s and the same company has restarted the 21st century edition. The Mohican Base Ball Club of Kennett Square is already to compete in the League as well in 2014. The Mohican Club will be the 2nd Club in Chester County and like the Brandyines, they are modeled after one of the most successful amateur clubs in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Mohicans had several players play in the Major Leagues including Herb Pennock, the Hall of Fame pitcher for the famous 1927 Yankees and General Manager of the Phillies.
Both clubs are now available for scheduling and look forward to a very successful 2014 campaign. They join the Providence Grays from Rhode Island as new entries in to the MAVBBL for 2014. Stay tuned for even more announcements about future clubs right here!
