Back in my rugby days, there were a few Cleveland club rugby teams like the Cleveland Blues and Cleveland Grays.
Until this week, I didn't know there was a vintage baseball team called the Cleveland Blues.
In Vintage Baseball, they play the game with uniforms, equipment and rules of 1860's era baseball. That means no gloves or mitts, no calling of balls and strikes and if you catch the ball on one bounce it is an out. Lots of other interesting rules too.
The language is fun too. "Well struck, sir" may come from both benches after a player hits a long ball.
The game Saturday was at historic League Park at 66th and Lexington in Cleveland.
