    Historic Baseball Game in Lexington

    This sounds like it would actually be pretty cool to take the kids to in May:

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Baseball fans can catch a game at Waveland State Historic Site in Lexington that will recreate how the sport was played in the 1860s.

    State tourism officials say the game between the Losantiville Black Stockings and Norwood Highlanders will be May 17.

    Players will dress in recreated uniforms, with equipment made to standards of the period.

    They'll use the rules, customs and terminology of baseball's earliest days.

    The game starts at 2 p.m. EDT. Tickets for adults are $5, children ages 7-12 are $1 and children 6 and under are free. Tickets include a walking tour of the historic home.

    Chris Rock had a monologue this week for HBO regarding blacks and baseball. This type of event was mentioned in it.
