Tomorrow afternoon, Saturday, April 12th, baseball fans can take a look at the way baseball was played in the 19th century and get autographs from Somerset Patriots players and coaches at the team’s annual Fan Fest at TD Bank Ballpark.

The event, which will be held from noon-3 p.m., will feature a game between the Flemington Neshanock and the Elizabeth Resolutes played using 1864 rules. The two teams are members of the Mid-Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League.

Somerset Patriots manager emeritus Sparky Lyle, manager Brett Jodie, hitting coach Shane Spencer and select team players will also be on hand to sign autograph at various times during the event.

Fans will be able to tour the ballpark and take advantage of ticket specials, and there will be a variety of children’s activities.
