Vermilion Voles Vintage Base Ball Club



Established in 2003, the Vermilion Voles are a vintage base ball club (VBBC) that reenacts the game as it was played in 1858, the era of America’s history when the game of baseball was anointed as the National Pastime.  We make every effort to adhere to recorded history, to stage and play our matches exactly as they were played by our country’s forebears.

The Voles play their home games for the cranks at Kennekuk Meadows in Kennekuk County Park.
