The Minerva Baseball Club of Bridgeton Prepares for its Inaugural Game

July 12, 2013

The Cumberland Insurance Group’s “Minerva Base Ball Club of Bridgeton” has begun preparations for its first game. The team has been practicing several weeks preparing to play the Diamond State Baseball Club of Delaware. The game is set to be played on Sunday, July 28, at 3p.m., at Alden Field in Bridgeton NJ as part of the Bridgeton Invitational Tournament. The vintage base ball game will be played with rules from 1864. Two of the rules of the game back then is the players do not wear gloves and if you catch the ball on one bounce, it is an out. Also, the sport was two words in the 1860’s- base ball. It will be a fun day of base ball at Alden Field./upload/images/minervabaseball3.JPG
