Reminiscent of barnstorming tours of yesteryear, the match begins at 5:30 p.m., as the Capitol Cannons challenge the Ohio Village Muffins and Lady Diamonds in an exhibition game of vintage “base ball.” The event is free and open to the public. Celebrate the Ohio Statehouse and take a step back to the 1800’s with an exhibition game as the Ohio Village Historical Muffins play the members of the Ohio General Assembly on the west lawn of Capitol Square. Bring your lawn chair or blanket and come to the “People’s House” to enjoy the hour-long old-time base ball (originally two words) game.
Before and after the base ball game, stay and enjoy cannon firing demonstrations and history displays. Come early to choose your spot as concessions will be available. The 1st Ohio Light Artillery, Battery A will provide cannon fire demonstrations as part of the event. Sponsorship provided by the Ohio Lobbying Association.
