Wilmington residents to see homage to 19th Century baseball

August 23, 2013 by  

The All-American Day is set to be held this weekend and will include a historical baseball game.

The event will feature some great activities for the whole family to enjoy while watching as the game unfolds. Poster printing and banner printing were most likely used to promote and advertise this special day to members of this community and other towns in the state.

During this fun family event, viewers will be able to watch a great baseball game between the Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club and the Diamond State Base Ball Club, while enjoying activities such as tug of war and hoop and stick. This game is being played in an informal setting, so viewers must bring their own seating or blankets, sunscreen, and sunglasses. During the game, there will be all types of all-American foods available to be purchased.

This event is part of the “Let’s Move” action program. Families are reminded that this is a rain or shine event, so please dress appropriately. This is an opportunity for children to learn about how the game has changed over the years.

The day is free for everyone to attend. The All-American Day event is occurring on Sunday, August 25th between 1:00pm and 4:00pm at the Hagley Museum and Library, located at 200 Harley Creek Road in Wilmington, Delaware. To learn more about this event or the Museum, please visit the Hagley Museum and Library website or call the Hagley Museum and Library at 302-658-2400.
