    Dear Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League members,

    All points bulletin:

    My name is Phil Walsh and I’m a member of the 1860s era Mechanicsburg Nine Base Ball Club in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (our first year). On Sunday June 6th The Harrisburg Senators (AA affiliate of the Washington Nationals) will honor former members of the Harrisburg Giants a Negro League ball club. The Giants will be introduced prior to the game and the Senators will wear period uniforms during their game.

    At the conclusion of the Senators game, the Mechanicsburg Nine has been offered the opportunity to play a 3 inning exhibition Vintage Base Ball game in front of the crowd. There are only two weeks until the event and we need to find an opponent and would like to know if your team would be interested. We are about an hour or so north of Baltimore.

    Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions.

    -Phil Walsh
