About The Wahoo Base Ball Club of Royal Oak
The Wahoo Base Ball Club of Royal Oak, MI plays The Game of Base Ball as it was played in the early 1860's. We play in the gentlemanly manner that was common of the era. The sport was played with no gloves and wood bats. Before contracts and before PED's men played purely for the love of the game. That is what we try to bring to the field when we play.
The Wahoo BBC plays 16+ matches a year against teams from around the midwest. Home games are played at Starr Jaycee Park in Royal Oak, MI. Highlights of the 2019 season include the Michigan Vintage Base Ball Festival in Frankenmuth, MI and a trip to Columbus for the Ohio Cup.
A fun tradition of vintage base ball is that every player has a nickname by which they're known. If you're smart you pick your own early, otherwise one gets assigned to you that may not be complimentary!
