100th Anniversary Game at League Park Was This Weekend


You can file this under: Things I Had No Idea Were Occurring.

The 100th anniversary game at League Park was played last weekend by those guys who play baseball by those old rules because it's fun or something. League Park II hosted its first game on April 21, 1910, and Cleveland Blues Baseball Club is still showing up each spring to play old-timey ball and honor League Park's history.

Currently, the two remaining structures of the park have been partially renovated. The ticket house still has leaks, and many broken windows. The right field wall, although reinforced, is still in jeopordy of becoming condemned as time goes by. The park hosts practices and MUNY football games for people in the community, and is the future home of the new Cleveland Buckeyes. The only baseball being played at the park is by the Cleveland Blues Base Ball Club, a vintage base ball team playing by the rules of 1864.
