Come out and experience vintage baseball in the meadow at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge. Featuring the Flemington Neshanocks versus the NY Mutuals.

Experience the crack of wood against leather, the cheers and jeers of the crowd, and baseball the way great-grandpa saw it, when these reenactor teams play with 19th century rules, equipment, and uniforms in an open field. A great way for the family to enjoy America’s game!
