[ARCHIVED] Vintage Baseball Game is back at Elmhurst University on June 4


The “kranks” and the “strikers” are gearing up and preparing to “hit the apple out of the orchard.” That’s Vintage Baseball verbiage for “play ball!” The Elmhurst Heritage Foundation is once again presenting a throwback competition played by the old-school rules of the 1850’s when the Vintage Baseball Game returns to the Elmhurst University campus on Saturday, June 4, 2022 starting at 2 p.m.  

The fans (known as “kranks”) will be on hand to cheer and jeer in fine Victorian fashion as two Elmhurst clubs face off in a Town vs. Gown showdown between the City of Elmhurst and Elmhurst University staff players. The game is open to the public and takes place on the Elmhurst University Mall at 190 S. Prospect Ave. (in front of Hammerschmidt Chapel. Admission is free, and fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, picnics and refreshments to enjoy during the game. Free parking is available in the Elmhurst University parking lots. More information...
