    Vintage Baseball at Historic Ramsey House

    Vintage Baseball will be opening their season at Historic Ramsey House, 2614 Thorn Grove Pike, on April 10th with a Celebration of Vintage Baseball from 7PM to 9PM. This is an opportunity for all to meet the Vintage Baseball Players, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and the Collector’s Edition Barbershop Quartet. We invite our community to help us kick off Knoxville’s Vintage Baseball season by attending the reception that will offer light hors d’ oeuvres and wine. There will be no admission fee for current HRH members; there will be a suggested donation of $10 for non-members.  Memberships will be available for purchase.

    Saturday April 11th, will open with doubleheader starting at noon. Historic Ramsey House has the honor of hosting two home teams this year, The Knoxville Holstons and the Emmett Machinist. The Holstons will be opening against the Highland Rim Distillers, while the Emmett Machinist will play the Stewart’s Creek Scouts. The games are great family fun that fit our educational mission and service to our community. There is no charge for the games and as always there will be hot dogs, popcorn, beverages and more available for purchase.
