A central Illinois entity is looking for baseball players to participate in their old-school baseball league this summer.

 

The Macon County Conservation District is looking for able bodies athletes of any skill level to play baseball from 1858. Richie Wolf indicates the vintage baseball team, The Groundsquirrels, will open their season May 25 at noon.

 

 

Wolf indicates baseball from 1858 is played like the baseball we know today but without gloves and a few twists in the rules.

 

 

The Groundsquirrels are looking for players for this year's season. Wolf explains players are volunteers and they travel all over the area for games throughout the summer.

 

 

According to Wolf, it is free for anyone to play but they ask you to register by calling Jenny 217-423-7708.
