The Cincinnati Vintage Base Ball Club is an organization that faithfully recreates the sport of base ball as it was played in 1869. For that was the year of the famous Cincinnati Red Stockings, who introduced professional base ball to America.

Our club features two teams, the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, and their close rivals of the time, the Cincinnati Buckeyes. Our ballists play in accurately-recreated uniforms, with equipment made only to standards of the period. We utilize the rules, customs and terminology of base ball’s earliest days, creating an educational, historic and fun environment that anyone can enjoy.

Our home field is at Heritage Village in Sharon Woods Park, north of Cincinnati, Oh. Schedules can be found on the team sites.
