VINTAGE BASE BALL RETURNS TO BISBEE’S HISTORIC WARREN BALLPARK APRIL 1st – 2nd
Vintage base ball returns to Bisbee’s historic Warren Ballpark April 1st and 2nd. Teams from Bisbee, Tucson, Colorado, California and the Phoenix metro area take to the field to play in the 12th Copper City Classic Vintage Base Ball Tournament at Bisbee’s 113-year-old Warren Ballpark.
These vintage base ball clubs, dressed in uniforms dating back a century or more, will play by rules in effect when Abraham Lincoln first ran for president in 1860. One of the teams, the Maricopa Maidens, is an all-female team from the Phoenix metroplex that plays in uniforms identical to those worn by women in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League during the 1940s and 50s.
Play gets underway at 10 a.m. Admission is $10 for one day or $15 for both days. Children 12 and under are free with an adult ticket. With gratitude, active military are admitted free with ID. Donations will also be gratefully accepted. Beer and concessions will be sold. All proceeds from the event will be used to pay for renovations and improvements at Warren Ballpark.
