The Tennessee Association of Vintage Base ball was established in 2012 to entertain and educate our communities by recreating the civility of 19th century base ball.

Join the fun while experiencing America’s game as it was played in 1864. This free public event is enjoying its 5th season and 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 bare the names of actual teams that existed in Knoxville during that time. The Knoxville Holstons and Emmett’s Machinists play other vintage league teams from around the state.  

The league has been in existence for 5 years and has grown from two teams to somewhere close to 15.
