What's better on a warm summer day than baseball? On Sunday, August 12, bring the family for an old-fashioned, vintage baseball game or two at the historic Ayres/Knuth Farm in Denville, NJ.
Playing in period uniforms, and using the rules of the day, The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club will meet the Elkton Eclipse from Maryland, at Knuth Fields across from the Lakeview School on Cooper Road. They will share the story of baseball as it was played in the 1800s. The games start at 11 AM and will continue until about 4 PM. Come for one game, or stay for the double-header. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket, as in the 1860’s! Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Parking will be free.
Save money by purchasing advance tickets during business hours at the Denville Clerk’s Office in Town Hall, or at the Union Hill Farms stand on Cooper Road - or to pre-purchase tickets securely on line, follow the link from our website http://www.ayresknuthfarm.org/. Advance prices are $5 for adults and students, $2 for children 12 and under. Tickets purchased at the games will cost $8 for adults, $5 for students, and $4 for children.
