A great day for 'base ball' in Colt Park

OK, it took me long enough to post them, but here are a video clip and photos from the "Boost Hartford Day" triple-header that Hartford-based Friends of Vintage Base Ball held in Colt Park two Saturdays ago. It was a beautiful day for 1860s- and 1880s-style ball. Hartford Courant columnist and editor Tom Condon threw out the first pitch before the second game, with Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra doing the honors for the third game. Unfortunately, I wasn't around for the mayor's toss, but Tom Condon's superb form (maybe it was the Curt Schilling t-shirt?) is captured below. That's FOVB Commissioner Gary "Pops" Goldberg-O'Maxfield making the introduction.

Friends of Vintage Base Ball is a great ambassador for Hartford. It will hold a fund-raiser on October 21, but don't be shy about making a contribution in the meantime.
