Old Timers vintage base ball tournament will be back on Sunday of festival weekend at Cy Young Park with four teams coming to town. 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. Snow Cone Vendor and Newcomerstown Masonic Lodge will have a food stand set up for your enjoyment as well! In addition to bleachers being provided, feel free to bring a chair or a blanket to sit on and spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon with us. Please brush up on your Old Timers rules, the spectators are also part of the game! We will also have a special guest appearance, don't miss out.

Thanks to our Corporate Sponsors:
Cy Young Days will be holding a charity auction in August that will be online with LiveAuctioneers.com. LiveAuctioneers will be posting a story about me, my relation to Cy Young the baseball legend and the charity organization in "Auction Central News". This auction will be held to benefit the youth of Newcomerstown. Newcomerstown was home to Denton "Cy" in the later years of his life and he was actively involved with the Little League and kids. I am carrying on the family tradition of helping the youth of Newcomerstown. The auction will contain my artwork exclusively. The original paintings, giclees, prints and metal art will be auctioned directly by the the Cy Young Days charity. I will be donating approximately 150-200 works of art valued at $150,000. I'll post more details in the coming weeks.
