The Capitol Conference, part of the Mid-Atlantic Vintage Base Ball League (www.mavbbl.com) is made up of vintage base ball teams in the greater Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas. Our teams play by nineteenth century rules using authentic replicas of nineteenth century equipment and uniforms. As was the custom in the 1860s, we play the field barehanded, without gloves.
When teams such as the Chesapeake, Arundel Excelsiors, Potomac, and Old Dominions take the field, players and fans alike can step back in time to a simpler era and experience baseball the way it was meant to be played.
Welcome to our website, where you can learn more about the great game of vintage base ball.
