Old Bethpage, NY

 

Game 1 - 1864 Rules:


The Gotham Base Ball Club of New York traveled the well-worn routes of Long Island on their annual pilgrimage to pay tribute to the team's birth place, Old Bethpage Restoration Village.  Unfortunately they disrespected us by not letting us win all four games.


In the Gotham BBC's first match of the tournament and its first match ever against the Hartford Colt 45s, the team exhibited some fine base ball.  In the top of the 1st frame Collector started off with a 4 base hit, Huzzah!  In the bottom of the 1st frame the Colt 45s scored 1.  The Gotham BBC scored no aces in the top of the 2nd frame and the Colt 45s scored 3.  In the top of the 3rd frame the Gotham BBC scored 3 aces. Collector hit a 2 base hit, stole 3rd and came home on Dutch's 1 base hit.  Dutch stole 2nd and 3rd and came home on Wickets' 1 base hit.  Wickets eventually scored on hands by Bambi and Weed.  In the bottom of the 3rd frame the Colt 45s scored 2 aces.  In the top of the 4th frame, the Gotham BBC scored 3 more aces.  Iron hit a one base hit, stole 2nd base and came home on Daffy's 1 base hit.  Daffy scored on Collector's one base hit.  Collector stole 2nd and 3rd and came home on hands.  The next two frames the score remained tied at 7.  In the top of the 7th frame, the Gotham BBC scored 1 ace.  Collector hit a two base hit and scored on Dutch's 1 base hit.  Unfortunately, the Colt 45s scored 5 aces in their half of the 7th frame.  In the top of the 9th the Gotham BBC held a rally and scored 2 more aces but it fell short of the victory.  Daffy hit a two base hit, stole 3rd base and came home on Collector's 3  base hit.  He eventually scored on hands.  The game ended with the score Gotham BBC 10 Colt 45s 12.

Game 2 - 1864 Rules:

 

The Gotham BBC's next game versus the Waterbury Connors did not fair so well.  We struggled to have a team, at the plate and in the field.  Through the first 4 frames the Gotham BBC had one hit and poor Pops (Muffin from the fine city of Philadelphia) over ran 1st base and was tagged out.  Meanwhile Waterbury scored 11 aces.  In top half of the 6th frame Dirt hit a one base hit, stole 2nd and 3rd and scored on Charlie's one base hit.  In the top 7th frame, Collector scored on a one base hit, a steal of 2nd and 3rd and a easy stroll home on Phillie's (Another muffin from Philadelphia) 2 base hit.  Unfortunately Waterbury scored 6 aces in their half of the 7th.  In the 8th frame, the Gotham BBC scored 1 more ace.  Dirt (Mutuals) hit a 1 base hit, stole 2nd base, came home on Charlie's (Providence Grays) two base hit.  We held the Connors to 0 aces the rest of the game.  The finally tally was Gotham BBC 3 Waterbury Connors 17
