The newly formed Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball (two words, just as it was spelled until the 1930s) hits a home run with its Sunday matches. The eight-team league plays through September, using 1864-era rules, at historic sites and parks around the Nashville area, including the sweeping Bicentennial Capitol Mall. Bring a blanket and hit up one of the food trucks parked around the field for lunch. We love the trousers, caps, and free admission—all wistful reminders of the good ol’ days.
