The Great Black Swamp Frog Base Ball Club will take on the Grasshoppers Aug. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Lutheran Home of Toledo, 2519 Seaman Rd., Toledo, at the corner of Seaman and Wheeling.

The teams play Civil War-era base ball matches using rules codified in 1860. The Frogs wear authentic uniforms of the period modeled after the 1866 Baraboo, Wisc. Base Ball Club uniform.

The Frogs, based in Sylvania, is so named because of the Great Black Swamp that once covered much of Northwest Ohio, and because Toledo was known as Frogtown.

Preceding the game, from noon to 2 p.m., there will be food and family activities available. In addition, a DJ from K-100 radio will be on hand, along with Muddy and Muddonna from the Toledo Mud Hens, the St. Charles Mercy Health Van, music, kids’ games and much more. 

Bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on. For more information, call 419-693-0751 ext. 246.
