Honor, sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct in sports? It is possible, but to find it you'll have to go back to a kinder, gentler place - specifically, the Ohio Historical Village. This Saturday beginning at noon, the Ohio Village Muffins vintage baseball team will play a triple-header against fellow vintage clubs the Blue Ashlars and the Columbus Unknowns.

Besides the awesomeness of watching America's favorite pastime played as it existed in the mid-1800s, first-timers will be surprised at a few of the era's regulations and sartorial choices. What you won't see are gloves or protective equipment (didn't exist until 1860), or super-fast pitches (only underhanded pitches using leather balls were allowed). And no, you aren't in the wrong place if you see a bunch of Gordon Gee look-alikes. Bow ties were the norm, along with long pants, pillbox hats and shirts with shields.
