Bringing Baseball Back to Huntsville · Established 2015
Huntsville Vintage Base Ball Club
By: Guy "Lemon Drop" Kerby
The Huntsville Vintage Base Ball Club (HVBBC) came about in March of 2014 based on my love of history, enjoyment of baseball, and Huntsville losing its minor league team, the Huntsville Stars. After a year of research, attending games, and plenty of emails, the Redcaps of the HVBBC joined VBBA.org as Full Member team for the 2016 season. By November of 2015 we did field a team with umpire, as well as gathering equipment and uniforms.
501c3 paperwork has been submitted through Madison County, Alabama for our non-profit education status. We are dedicated to presenting the original game of base ball (yes it was originally two words) and all of its gentlemanly rules to today’s public and helping them learn the history of the early game through personal interaction. The Redcaps of Huntsville play by the 1860 Beadles Rules,http://vbba.org/rules-and-customs/1860-beadles-rules-with-interpretation/. It is also our hope that more people join in and we can form more teams in the North Alabama area.
