Base Ball History Day

Watch an old-fashioned game of Base Ball (yes, it was originally two words!) as Old World Wisconsin's 1860s vintage team, the Eagle Diamonds, faces off against the Milwaukee Cream Citys Club. Have a hotdog and root for your favorite team! The Eagle Diamonds base ball team is Old World Wisconsin's home team. Inspired by a local team organized in 1868, the Diamonds' uniforms, equipment and rules are the same as those of that time. Admission to Old World Wisconsin allows visitors to see the Diamonds' home games for free.

Ticket Info: Adults $16; children (5-17) $9 (children under 5 are free); students and senior citizens (65 and over) $14; family (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $43. Fees include an all-day tram transportation pass.
