1800s Baseball

       A batter for Rock Ledge Ranch’s “Camp Creek Sluggers” pops one up to the right in 2005 during the historic site’s annual Labor Day baseball game (Sept. 1 this year), played by 1800s-era rules. Also eyeing the flight of the ball are the umpire (far left) and the catcher for the opposing team, the Denver All-Stars.
