Vintage Baseball

The Plano Conservancy ​for Historic Preservation 

The Plano Drovers Vintage Base Ball Club is a joint venture between The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation and the Heritage Farmstead Museum. The Drovers play base ball according to the 1860’s rules & customs.



The major rules differences include:

* slightly larger ball (10" circumference) with a rubber center

* no called balls or strikes, and pitching is underhanded

* players do not use gloves

* no sliding, no stealing, no bunting

* a batter is out when the ball is caught on the first bounce
