The Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site will host its annual Labor Day vintage baseball game Monday, Sept. 5.
       The first pitch is scheduled at 1 p.m. at the hayfield near the Rock Ledge House (which also serves as the right field seating area).
       Lasting nine innings, the game will be played by 1800s baseball rules, including no baseball gloves, outs on hit balls caught on one hop and the capability for the “cranks” (fans) to catch balls and throw them to fielders for outs.
       The local team is called the Cloud Busters; their opponent will be a team of players who participate in a vintage league in the Denver area.
       Located off Gateway Road west of 30th Street, the ranch will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day.
       Admission will be $8 for adults, $4 for ages 6 to 17 and no charge for ages 5 and under.
       The public is welcome to bring picnic lunches and sling chairs. Vendors will also be on hand.
