As a re-creation of one of the first base ball clubs in Northeastern Maryland, the Rising Sun Base Ball Club combines sport with history Our organization plays the game of base ball in accordance to the rules and regulations adopted by the National Association of Base Ball Players, held in New York in December, 1863. This includes 19th century style uniforms, equipment (no gloves!), language, and behavioral norms. The Rising Sun Base Ball Club is a group of amateur locals who play base ball as it was played before professional clubs existed.
The team is always looking for new playing or non-playing members! Contact us for more information.
Rising Sun Base Ball Club's mission is to present an accurate representation of the game as it was originally intended to be played. The club prides itself on bringing the original game of base ball to the public. Spectators are always welcome and encouraged to attend all of our events!
