Friends of Vintage Base Ball in Hartford, Connecticut


The Friends of Vintage Base Ball has been working hard over the past two years to have a little-known 19th century base ball pioneer receive due recognition. On July 31, 2014, Doc Adams was selected as SABR's Overlooked 19th Century Baseball Legend for 2014. The announcement was made at the Nineteenth Century Committee’s annual business meeting held at SABR 44 in Houston. Huge thanks goes out to Marjorie Adams, Nancy Downey, Pops O'Maxfield, Roger and Cathy Ratzenberger and Karen O'Maxfield for their tireless efforts in helping to make this happen.

We support organizations, programs and events that honor the history of baseball, both amateur and professional, anywhere the game has been played.
