The Rochester Grangers existed as a base ball club as early as 1871. Vintage base ball is played representing a time period when gentleman played for leisure and not for competition. You will not see any spitting, sliding, or wagering at these matches! Home matches are played at the Museum and guests should bring their own chairs or blankets, cool drinks, and sun protection.

Free, no registration required. Just show up with your chairs, sunscreen and snacks! We are able to offer many of our programs for free, thanks to the continued financial support of our museum members and the community.
