best blast-from-the-past nut-job hobby New York 2003 - THE GOTHAM BASE BALL CLUB OF NEW YORK

Part costumed living historians, part beer-league athletes, THE GOTHAM BASE BALL CLUB OF NEW YORK plays vintage baseball in Queens' Crocheron Park. In 1864 (the year of the rule book the Gothams adopted), pitchers "hurled" underhanded, a ball caught on a bounce was a put-out, and 100 other things were different from today's game. At a Gothams "match," you can see these rules enacted by a bunch of misshapen guys wearing baggy woolen outfits and funny hats.
