PHOTO GALLERY: Dexter, Chelsea Battle in 1860s Vintage Baseball Game

The Union Base Ball Club of Dexter closed its first season with a Civil War-era game against Chelsea on Saturday.

Dexter Daze visitors got a rare glimpse of 1860s-style baseball on Saturday, when the Union Base Ball Club of Dexter took on the Chelsea Monitors in a head-to-head matchup at Gordon Hall.

Dexter ended its inaugural season, joining 25 other teams from across Michigan who have resurrected actual clubs from the mid-19th century.
