Enjoy a game of catch as they did back in the day. Over a half-century before Babe Ruth's first plate appearance, the lemon ball was on the field. Softer than today's baseball, this replica of the 1800's lemon peel ball takes us back to a time when baseball was gloveless and bats were real thick. Made of full grain leather reproductions of the authentic lemon peel style baseball from the early 1800s indoor or outdoor use will develop a rich patina over time 3.5 oz. 8 3/4" diam.
You can see games played by 1867 rules in Greenfield Village every weekend every summer.
