CORNISH, ME – JUNE 25: Members of the Mechanics Base Ball Club of Andover, Mass get ready to start a game in the New England Vintage Base Ball Festival at the Cornish Fairgrounds in Cornish, Maine on Saturday, June 25, 2016. A benefit in helping to restore and preserve the Cornish Fairgrounds, organised by the townÕs historical society and fairground committee, the festival will continue on Sunday with more 1864-rules baseball featuring six vintage base ball clubs from Maine, New England and New Jersey. Some of the rules in place during that era that are different than todayÕs game, include a player is ruled out if the ball is caught by the first hop, a ball that first lands in play that goes foul is considered a fair ball and pitches are made underhand.
