Vintage Baseball Game: Monmouth Furnace vs. Elizabeth Resolute

By Lori Draz

UPDATE: This event is reported to have been canceled.

With live sports put on hold during the pandemic, many fans have turned to rewatching classic games on television. Now, locals will get the chance to watch a really old game when vintage baseball returns to the ballfield at Atlantic Highlands for the third straight year.

On Saturday, Aug. 8 at 11 am, it will be time for the battle between the Monmouth Furnace as the returning home team against the Elizabeth Resolutes. This unique game will be played by 1860’s rules, and players, coaches and umpires will wear vintage uniforms. Gates open at 10 am, and there will also be children’s games and activities for all. And the 1860s ticket price? It’s free admission. Interested sports and memorabilia vendors are welcome to sell their goods.
