Canal Dover Redlegs, Mohican Rivermen, Whiskey Island Shamrocks and our local Newcomerstown Cyclones. Come journey back in time to a day when life was a little slower and gentleman dressed in wool caps,  knickers and high stockings. This is a  recreation of the way our national past time was played in the mid 1800's using the same rules and language of the era during the days of the Civil War.
