America’s pastime makes its way to the Bay for one of the most unique events of the summer in Ohio. Put-in-Bay plays host to the Ohio Historical Society Muffins as they take on the Put-in-Bay Mossbacks! You’ll see a game of baseball played by the original rules of the game from the 1800’s and old-timey uniforms to match! It’s like taking a step back in time to the America of yesteryear. This classic clash between the Muffins and the Mossbacks is proudly sponsored by Miller Boat Line.

On this day especially, we recommend Mossbacks, they have breakfast lunch and dinner, and since it’s their squad competing in the game, you should stop in and congratulate them on their victory or commiserate with them over their defeat!
There’s so much excellent dining and shopping on the island, not to mention all of the sites to see, so there’s never a bad weekend to come up to the island. However, if you’re lucky enough to have chosen this weekend as the weekend for your vacation, we definitely think it’s worth your time to stop up to the fields for a couple of hours, get a couple of soda pops for charity and enjoy a historic baseball battle!
