Baseball in Tipp City’s Past

   Posted by: admin    in History, Tipp City

According to page 33 of the Tippecanoe Sesquicentennial book, published in 1990:

In the 1900s baseball was organized in Tippecanoe city and became the Sunday afternoon pastime, with entire families walking or driving the buggy east of the canal where a field was maintained.  In 1912, tiers of bleachers were built for the crowds, swelled by the rivalry between towns — Troy, Piqua, Sidney, Botkins and Wapakoneta being others in the circuit.  The Tipp Sleepies were skilled and competitive.  Legend has it that they won more than one game of the few played against the Cincinnait Reds, the Cuban All Stars and the Nebraska Indians — teams who barnstormed the area playing local teams following their regular seasons.

The 1912 Tipp Sleepies lineup included Butch Henn, Gard Shear, Ora Wells, Bert Jackson, Ben Widener, Potts, and Ralph Herring.  Dillon and Heide were the pitchers and Clarence Snider the manager.  Gus Schultz was a well known pitcher, and Herman “Dutch” Schultz played, along with Ben Grey and his older brother, along with many others.

What is Vintage Base Ball? Vintage Base Ball is base ball (yes, it was spelled two words prior to the 1880s) played by the rules and customs of the 19th Century. Our players (sometimes called ballists) wear period reproduction uniforms, either with long trouser and shield shirt, cialis cost canada or a later style lace shirt and knickers. They recreate the game based on rules and research of the various decades of the mid-to-late nineteenth century. The playing of vintage base ball can be seen at open-air museums, tournament re-enactments and city parks. It is played on both open grass fields and modern baseball diamonds. Spectators may consider vintage base ball to be a new sport, however, some clubs have been in existence since the 1980s. Vintage base ball is a reflection of how baseball existed at an earlier time.
