This presentation will offer stories and information that will help you understand a vintage base ball match. Ellie has been the manager, “Boss Lady,” of The Chicago Salmon since 1996. In all those years, she has baked thousands of pretzels, grilled tons of chicken, sewn hundreds of uniforms and costumes for umpires and followers, and mended more than several pairs of trousers ( sometimes with the player still in them). Boss Lady has also organized festivals, helped form new teams, and kicked at least one player off the team for having a bad attitude. Join us for colorful stories, information, and answers to how vintage base ball was played. This program is included with admission.
