Part game, part show, part history lesson and ALL fun, the event also includes facts on the history of the game and a recitation of “Casey at the Bat.”

Both events are held in collaboration with Morven Museum and Garden, in conjunction with their exhibition, From the Cradle to the Major Leagues: New Jersey Base Ball 1855 – 1915.

In 1953, the Marquand family donated 17 acres of their estate, Guernsey Hall, to the municipality of Princeton to serve as an arboretum and passive recreation park. Once part of a 30-acre farm owned by Judge Richard Stockton Field, Marquand Park is home to more that 140 difference tree specimens, some dating back over 170 years! Free, registration is recommended, as space is limited.
Fall date will be announced in late summer.
