Clodbusters meeting

GREENE COUNTY — The Clodbuster Base Ball Club was formed 28 years ago to demonstrate and enjoy the early years of the great American game of base ball. The team will play the game according to the rules of 1860 and dress in “uniforms” that would be appropriate for a farm community club in Ohio in the early 1860s. Matches are scheduled with other “vintage” clubs from around the area during the summer, and often participate in festivals and tournaments. Players range in age from their mid-20s to their late-50s, with some scorers, umpires, and historical interpreters still active into their early 70s.

The meeting will be 1 p.m. March 12 to learn more about the Clodbuster Base Ball Club. For additional information or if you have questions, please send an email to
