Mustangs Vintage Baseball Club, Farmers Branch

Mustangs Vintage Baseball Club is one of about 8 Vintage Baseball Teams that play according to 1860 rules and customs.  As a baseball family, we couldn’t wait to watch them play, and had a great time!

They use the same equipment as those players in the 1800’s.  They do not use baseball gloves, instead allowing the ball to bounce in front of them.  In early 1900, teams began using a baseball “glove” that knocked the ball down, then they would scoop it up.

We first learned about the Vintage Baseball Teams during our tour of Nokona Baseball Glove Factory.  The only factory to still make baseball gloves in the US, they offer a tour of their factory on Mondays and Fridays.  Click HERE to read more.
