The old ball game at Strasburg Rail Road

Are you watching the MLB playoffs? If you really have baseball fever, you can rewind back to a purer time before sky boxes, obnoxious beer commercials and instant replay. Board the Strasburg Rail Road (301 Gap Road, Ronks) from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Oct. 9  and watch modern day men playing base ball as it was first conceived (and spelled), with bare hands instead of gloves and nicknames like Trick, Foghorn and Bumpus.
