Bring family and friends and come join us watch base ball players re-create Vintage Base Ball as it was played in 1864. It is a free public event and the Historic Ramsey House is proud to be a part of this historic reenactment. The players play by 1864 rules, wear period uniforms and our local Knoxville teams bear the names of actual teams that existed in Knoxville during that time.


To make your trip back to 1864 historic, here’s a few suggestions:

• Bring a blanket or chairs and grab a good spot in the field to witness the likes of Doc Hardy rumbling and tumbling down the base paths!

• Protection from the sun’s intense rays is suggested; parasols, all the rage in Knoville’s finest stores, also work well to deflect foul balls!

• Be ready to cheer and interact with the ballists! We have an “open bench” policy, so feel free to ask questions or for autographs… The Kid can spell, we promise!

• Col. Ramsey asks that outside food and coolers not be brought to the matches. His family, though, will have available some of the best victuals (hot dogs, popcorn, beer, &c.) this side of the Holston River. Proceeds from sales support the preservation of Col. Ramsey’s historic home.

• Admission is FREE, but it doesn’t hurt to become a member or make a contribution to Historic Ramsey House, as us ballists wouldn’t have a place to play without their generous support.
