Vintage Baseball Game and Fulton County Baseball
& Sports HOF Inductions Scheduled at Parkhurst Field

 

The Fulton County Baseball & Sports Hall of Fame will be holding its 2016 Inductions on Sunday July 10th at Parkhurst Field in Gloversville NY between innings of a Vintage Baseball Game.

We will be celebrating our 110th anniversary of the opening of the park!

DSC_0138Two games will be played that day, with the first being a Vintage Baseball Game using the MLB rules in place in 1886 that will take place between the Whatley Pioneers of Western Massachusetts and the local A., J. & G Team.  The A., J. & G team will be comprised of former Gloversville Little Leaguers who once played at the historic Parkhurst Field site.  Both teams will be wearing turn of the century style uniforms, while using period authentic gloves, balls & bats.

The second game will be a “throw-back” game between the “Gloversville Glovers” and the “Johnstown Buckskins” playing for the “Parkhurst Cup” following the Vintage Game.  The Gloversville Little League Majors All-Star team will be wearing throw back “Gloversville Glovers Uniforms” to honor the professional team that played in Gloversville from the mid-1930’s until 1951, while the Johnstown Little League Majors All-Star team will be wearing throw back “Johnstown Buckskins Uniforms” to honor the professional team that played in Johnstown in the late 1800’s.  They will be competing for the traditional “Parkhurst Cup”.
