The Athletic Base Ball Club of Philadelphia is here to introduce communities across the region to the sociable and well-played game that defined 1864 base ball and that 12-year period of fine, high-quality local Clubs before the professional era took hold. In particular, we are keen to re-establish each of the Clubs the Athletic played from 1859 to 1872 – for re-matches 135-years in the making. We welcome enthusiastic Lady and Gentlemen ball players and arbiters (umpires). There is a period uniform with your name on it. Claim it. See our Schedule. Come out to a match! Meet the New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland Clubs on our home field in Fairmount Park, Memorial Field (right next to the Please Touch Museum).
