Clodbusters Base Ball

Typically holding games on Sundays, and during Carillon Historical Park’s main events, the Clodbuster Base Ball Club play 1860s base ball (spelled using two words until the 1880s). Enjoying the game the “way it was meant to be played,” the Clodbusters dress in period uniforms and adhere to 1860s rules.

Games are played against other vintage base ball teams in the area. For more information, please email clodbusterbbc@gmail.com. Visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/clodbusterbbc or follow us on Instagram and Twitter. @clodbusterbbc
