Local celebrities take on Spiegel Grove Squires base ball team

Press Staff Writer

        Local celebrities will suit up and play the Spiegel Grove Squires, the vintage base ball team at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, on Sunday, June 25.
        The game will be held at 1 p.m. on the lawn behind the Hayes Home and carriage house. Admission is free.
        The teams will play base ball with the rules and style of the game during the Civil War era, when the sport was first rising to popularity. Back then, base ball was spelled with two words, and ballists, as players were called, played bare-handed.
