Fort Mackinac Ball Field
Fort Mackinac
Mackinac Island, MI United States

A vintage game of “base ball” as it was meant to be played, barehanded and by gentlemen’s rules on the old Fort Mackinac ball field behind Fort Mackinac, the oldest continually used ball field in Michigan!

Learn an old-fashioned cheer, watch players fined for smoking cigars on the field and enjoy a good old-fashioned rivalry!

The game pits the Fort Mackinac Never Sweats against the Bay City Independents.

Family $18
Adult $6
Youth (5-17) $3
Children 4 and under and Mackinac Associates above Heritage level – free.

Mackinac Island is in the Straits of Mackinac east of the Mackinac Bridge, about two hours north of Traverse City. Accessible by ferry, airplane or via the ice bridge in winter.
