The Kingsland Manor Presents
The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club
Kingsland Colonels of Nutley Base Ball Club
4th Annual Base Ball Classic
May 5th, 2018 at Yanticaw, Boys Park, Nutley, N.J.
The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club plays by 19th Century rules, uses authentic replicas of 19th Century equipment and wears 19th Century uniforms. As was the custom in the mid-19th Century, all fielders play barehanded - they do not wear gloves. Today’s Neshanock were re-established in 2001 by Brad “Brooklyn” Shaw, proudly reviving the original name of the team.
The Nutley Colonels was a semi-professional base ball club that was managed by a local All-State baseball star, Anthony J. San Giacomo. The Kingsland Manor is re-establishing that classic base ball club, fielding a “Colonels” team against the Neshanock Base Ball Club at Yanticaw Park on May 5th, 1 – 3 pm.
The Colonels team uniform will be white long-sleeved shirts and black pants and a pill-box styled base ball cap shown in the 1895 Colonels picture above.
