This year marks the 150th year of baseball in the state of Delaware and the Diamond State Base Ball Club (DSBBC), a New Castle County vintage base ball club, is planning to recognize the occasion with two special events open to the public in October, both in Wilmington.

 

ABOUT THE BALL CLUB: The Diamond State Base Ball Club is a 19th century base ball club based on a team of the same name, one of the first known amateur baseball teams organized in Delaware. Formed in 1865 in Wilmington, the original club played until the mid­1870s and was the preeminent amateur team in the state. The modern Diamond States wear uniforms replicating those worn by the original ball club. The club is a founding member of the Mid Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League, an association of 24 vintage base ball clubs from New York to Virginia.
