Cambridge Junction Historic State Park - Walker Wheels Historic Base Ball Invitational

2022-08-27T14:00:00Z 2022-08-27T21:00:00Z Cambridge Junction Historic State Park - Walker Wheels Historic Base Ball Invitational

Cheer on the home team Walker Wheels as they compete against other historic base ball clubs in this annual invitational tournament. They all play the game by 1860s rules - no gloves, no swearing! - when the sport was so new, it was spelled as two words.

This event is free of charge, sponsored by the Friends of Walker Tavern and the Walker Wheels Base Ball Club; a Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry to the park.

Cambridge Junction Historic State Park—one of the Michigan History Center's museums and historic sites—is located 35 miles west of Ann Arbor, at the junction of U.S. 12 and M-50; a Recreation Passport is required for park entry. Read more Cambridge Junction visitor information.
