Mayhem, 1860 Style

As some of you know, three members of Bertflex.com play vintage base ball. The Good Face a/k/a "Hashrake" plays for the St. Louis Unions, and Sir and myself play for the Saint Louis Perfectos. Saturday will mark yet another meeting between these two esteemed clubs, as we recreate America's game, as it was played in 1860, albeit without the malaria and dysentery.

Although Sir will be closing down the Chicago office, come out to the Unions' home field and see Hack take on The Good Face. We play as gentlemen played the game, with civility. However, since my 1860s "persona" is an attorney (big stretch from real life, I know) I'm even sharpening up my spikes for this one....

Event: Perfectos v. Unions
Date: Saturday, August 16, 2008
Time: 1:00PM CDT
Place: Unions' Home Field -- Old St. Ferdinand Shrine, Florissant, Missouri

You know, when I joined last year, I recall someone specifically mentioning that there would be malaria.

So far, I've been let down. What gives?
