Strasburg Rail Road 301 Gap Road Ronks, PA 17572 Directions
Embark on a train ride back in time at Strasburg Rail Road to enjoy an afternoon of America's pastime, vintage base ball. Departing hourly from the historic East Strasburg station, authentic steam trains will travel through scenic Pennsylvania Dutch country to Paradise, PA. With an exclusive stop at Verdant View Farm during the return trip, passengers may disembark and stroll across the farmland to watch a vintage base ball tournament between teams from Elkton, MD; Mechanicsburg and West Chester, PA; and Flemington, NJ. The tournament will be played by the rules of the game as they were in the 19th century, which promoted exercise and camaraderie, and featured the skill of playing with bare hands instead of gloves and referencing the game as "base ball" instead of "baseball" for example.
Event Price: $11 - 25
