The 19th Century Post Season presented by Richard D’Ambrisi
August 23, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Free with Museum Admission
The first modern World Series was played in 1903. However, many years earlier in the 1800s, being the champion baseball team was just as important. While not having a formal competition for most of the 19th Century, there still were many variations of year end play offs and post season matches held to determine champions and move the close of the baseball season further into the fall weather. The talk presented by vintage baseball living historian Richard “Pastime” D’Ambrisi on August, 23 2015 at 11:00AM in the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards will discuss 19th Century baseball post season play. On hand will be historical prints and pictures to help illustrate the story.

He is a member of the Vintage Base Ball Association, the Society for American Baseball Research, the National Association for Interpretation, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and a volunteer with the Education Department at Sports Legends at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.
