Experience the original passion of America's national pastime! Catch the world's greatest exhibition of historic base ball live in Greenfield Village.

It's a championship like no other. Every summer, we commemorate Detroit's 1867 World Base Ball Tournament with a gathering of teams that play America's game by those long-ago rules. It is unquestionably the nation's greatest two-day exposition of historic base ball. This is as good and as pure as America's pastime gets. Gloves optional. Gentlemanly play always expected. No designated hitters. Don't worry, though. We still have pitchers and batters and home runs. And for two days, we also have game after game of thrill-a-minute base ball until finally, just one team is left. The World Champions. Add some live period music, food and a bit of drama, and you've got a memorable weekend made for the diehard sports fan. It's base ball as you've never seen it before.

Access to the World Tournament is free for members of The Henry Ford or included with paid admission to Greenfield Village.
