This special day of vintage baseball at Preservation Long Island’s Sherwood-Jayne Farm in Setauket is a collaborative event inspired by two exhibitions currently on view at The Long Island Museum in nearby Stony Brook:
Picturing America’s Pastime (May 18-October 15, 2023): Since the 19th century, baseball and photography have grown up together. This exhibition of 51 historic photographs has been developed by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museums, the world’s premiere repository of baseball photographs.
Home Fields: Baseball Stadiums of Long Island and New York City (May 18-October 15, 2023): This exhibition features exciting objects from several private collectors of historic baseball memorabilia. Many original items from Ebbetts Field (the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers) Polo Stadium, and Yankee Stadium are on view.

What is included with the free entry to the event? Admission includes viewing the baseball game, as well as all lawn and table games, craft activities, and bounce castle. Food & beverages are available for purchase.
