The Atlantic BBC of Brooklyn will host the 2nd annual Smithtown Base Ball Festival on April 23-24, 2016 at the Smithtown Historical Society. Last year many clubs traveled from near and far to celebrate the 350th Anniversary of the founding of the town of Smithtown. Here is the information from last year:
To commemorate the 350th anniversary of Smithtown, the Atlantic Base Ball Club will host its first ever vintage base ball festival this weekend (April 25 and 26) on the grounds of the Smithtown Historical Society. There will be 8 games on Saturday, and 3 on Sunday, featuring 9 clubs from Massachusetts to Maryland. There will be base ball from 10am-5pm on Saturday, and 9:45-2:30 on Sunday. Parking and admission are FREE (bring a lawn chair!) and there will be hot dogs, soda, and water for sale. If you can’t make the games, then join us at the Pleasant Inn on Saturday night to hear all about the great (and not so great) plays from the day!
