From Bendure Communications:

LEESBURG, Va., --The Loudoun Preservation Society (LPS) will hold 19th Century Base Ball Day on Sunday, June 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Oatlands (20850 Oatlands Plantation Lane, Leesburg, Va. 20175). This unique, family-friendly event will feature teams from the Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League, playing by the rules and customs of the 1860s: no gloves, no helmets, and no catching gear.
