The historically accurate baseball match, a Hamilton County Bicentennial celebration event originally scheduled to be played this Saturday, April 22, has been re-scheduled due to the forecast for inclement weather. The prediction for potentially heavy rains on Friday and dropping temperatures, accompanied by high winds resulting in poor field conditions and a less-than-conducive event experience, contributed to the decision made by Hamilton County Bicentennial Committee members, Hamilton County Parks staff and the players.
Events Coordinator for Hamilton County Parks, Christopher Gullion, stated that “because of the special nature of this baseball game, we felt it should be played under the most ideal conditions for the spectators and the players. We will be offering all of the same entertaining and educational activities first planned for the event, which has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 27.” Historic Bishop’s Park in Arcadia remains the location where the “ultimate throwback game” will be played.
