On Wednesday, October 2 at 6 pm, baseball historian and author Marty Payne will speak on the early history of baseball on the Shore and the many changes the game has gone through before becoming the pastime that we know today. Marty has written for a number of publications.

What role did transportation and even war have on the game of baseball?  Was the game played differently around Maryland and around the U. S.?  Who really ‘invented’ baseball?  These and many other questions will be answered.

This talk is the final in a series that has been offered by the Dorchester County Historical Society.  Companion to these talks is an exhibit which will be on display through mid November, ‘Baseball in Cambridge.’ This interpretation of local baseball showcases decades of players including several who made it to the big leagues.

This casual event is free and open to the public at the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester at 1003 Greenway Drive in Cambridge, MD. For information call 410.228.7953.
