The Norwood Highlanders beat the Losantiville Black Stockings 16-4 on Sunday in a baseball game at Waveland State Historic Site that re-created how the sport was played in the 1860s.
Players dressed in old-time uniforms, with equipment made to standards of the period. They also used the rules, customs and terminology of the earliest days of base ball, which was spelled as two words back then.
The Highlanders and Black Stockings are based in Cincinnati. They play against each other and other vintage teams in a season that extends into October.
Waveland, off Nicholasville Road in southern Fayette County, is an antebellum mansion that was completed in 1848. The site, part of the Kentucky State Parks system, depicts life on a Kentucky plantation during the 1840s.
