COLUMBUS, Ohio — There was no chin music to show the pitcher’s dominance. There was no display of power.
Certainly, there was no arguing calls. This game is a gentleman’s game.
While the game was unmistakably baseball, it was a different game than played by today’s major leaguers.
Players on the 31 teams that participated in the 19th Annual Ohio Cup displayed their love of the game.
The baseball played here follows rules from the 1860s. So, batters could choose where they wanted their pitch, balls caught on the first bounce were an out and sliding was prohibited.
