Entertaining Them

I just came across this amazing living history museum, called Old World Wisconsin, which is now going to be on my “want to go there” list. Apparently it’s the largest living history museum in the US, but what really caught my attention, is that they have vintage base ball games. They play real games, but also act just as they would in the late 1800s. Umpires get addressed as Sir. Players are called “ballists” and fans are called “cranks”. It’s 35 miles from Milwaukee, 75 from Chicago, and not so far from Camp Wandawega, where you could stay overnight, still in the caught-in-time vibe, albeit many decades later.
