Hays Larks 75th Anniversary Celebration event: Hays Larks vs Historic Fort Hays Post Nine

Thursday, June 3, 2021

Celebrating the Hays Larks 75th Anniversary, a team of Larks alumni will play the Historic Fort Hays Post Nine team using the 1869 baseball rule book! The 1869 rules will surprise you! A fun, free family time, come on out to the ball game!

A vintage baseball game is planned. Come out to support our local teams as Ken Windholz announces the game along with Vintage Base Ball historian & commentator Mark Eberle.

 The undefeated Post Nine team will go head-to-head against the Hays Larks in a game that will entertain fans of all ages! The game will be played by the official 1869 rules & will be limited to use of 1869 era equipment. That means no mitts & more!

There will be a Society of Friends of Historic Fort Hays information & souvenir table manned by historic reenactors.
 Local historians/authors Mark Eberlewith (with his book, Kansas Baseball), Bob Wilhelm, & Marla Matkin will be present for book sales & signings.

The game is free & concessions will be available.
