Franklin Vintage Base Ball Festival – May 19

Sunday… Sunday… Sunday… (May 19, 2019)

Clear your calendar, get your Honey-Do list complete and head out to Carnton Plantation to see Civil War barehanded Base Ball.

There will be 8 games played on two fields!!

At 9:00am, on the Eastern Flank Field, you’ll see the Nashville Maroons Vintage Base Ball Club square up against the Mountain City Vintage Base Ball Club of Chattanooga.

On McGavocks Field, the Highland Rim Distillers Vintage Base Ball Club will play the Lightfoot Vintage Base Ball Club of Chattanooga.

Those are sure to be spirited gentlemanly matches to start the day. The next round of games will start at 11:00am.

Come out and show your support and see how base ball (yes 2 words) was played by our ancestors during the Civil War.

Bring a chair and enjoy the day with food trucks and base ball!
