Dexter Vintage Base Ball Club Seeks New Members

The Union Base Ball Club of Dexter prepares to play their second year of vintage base ball by holding information meetings.

The Union Base Ball Club of Dexter is holding two informational meetings to introduce prospective members to vintage base ball (yes, two words). The meetings will be held in the lower level meeting room at the Dexter District Library on the following dates:

Saturday, February 2nd @ 3:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 3rd @ 1 p.m.

The meetings should take roughly an hour, and we'll discuss what is involved in becoming a member of the Union Base Ball Club of Dexter, as well as where Dexter fits into the vintage base ball community and the future of the club.

Current members will be in attendance to answer any and all questions about playing on the club. The meeting will also discuss supporting roles within the club for individuals interested in being involved, but are unable to play the game.

It is encouraged that anyone interested attend one of the meetings, as the roster will be finalized by mid-February. If anyone cannot make either meetings, however, you can email unionbbc@gmail.com for information about becoming a member.

The Union Base Ball Club of Dexter played its first season of vintage base ball during the summer of 2012 on the front lawn of Gordon Hall. We play base ball as gentlemen by the rules of the 1860s.

We have a wide age range of men on our club, representing different ability levels. This is no 'all-star' team and everyone plays an equal amount, if you show up to a match you are guaranteed to play.

We play for fun and for the love of the game the way it was meant to be played!
