JC Skeeters in Hoboken This Saturday at 2 pm
|Vintage Base Ball Club the Hoboken Nine are playing their third league match next Saturday, a rematch with the Jersey City Skeeters, at 2 pm at Stevens Dobbelaar Field. |
Donning vintage-style uniforms and using 19th century gloves in their first match on August 11, the teams chose to play by 1903 rules, which involved overhand pitching and vintage-style gloves (teams can choose the rules from any era before the modern rules took effect).
The team, organized by Lara Hanson and Frank Stingone, comprises local Hoboken residents, many of whom play in a local softball league. Seven games have been scheduled for the team from August to October. This is one of three home games set in Hoboken. Find a schedule on the team's new website by clicking here.
The Hoboken Nine club played two games on Governors Island this past Saturday vs the NY Gothams. Come to the match on Saturday and cheer for the home team! Both teams will celebrate after the match at The Shannon on 1st street.
