Vintage Baseball at Muzzy Field
October 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The 2019 John P. Martin All-Star Series of Historical and Classic Baseball to benefit ALS Research returns to Muzzy Field in Bristol, CT on Sunday October 13th.
This year’s edition of the Fall Classic will showcase two contests of 1864 Base Ball (10 & 11:30am) followed by a re-creation of the 1986 MLB All-Star Game (1pm).
50 players from 27 teams across 9 states in the National Historical Base Ball project will once again descend upon Bristol for a day of sportsmanship and celebration of the early game. Players will step through time and convert to modern baseball in the afternoon session to underscore the differences from an earlier style of play.
The event is used to raise funding and awareness of ALS Research in the name of long-time NESN videographer John Patrick Martin who succumbed to his illness on the day of our 2018 event. While admission is free and open to the public, we kindly ask attendees to make a gift to ALS One through our donation portal.
The Selection Show, being broadcast to Facebook Live, can be seen on the “Connecticut Bulldogs Historical Baseball” social channel and will remain published for perpetuity.

The event is presented by the Bristol Historical Society, Team Bristol, the partners at Muzzy Field and the Connecticut Bulldogs
