Play Ball

A weekend back, the Bridgehampton Historical Society played host to two of those 19th century baseball re-enactment teams that no one really understands. The barehanded ball played last summer apparently made such an impression on BHS folks that Smithtown’s Atlantic Base Ball Club and Connecticut’s Bridgeport Orators were invited back this year for a second go around. Oh, history buffs. If this situation sounds familiar, you may remember another Long Island team who already had its moment in the sun, when made famous in perhaps the funniest bit ever aired on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
