Based on Port Huron’s first “club nine,” the Welkin Vintage Base Ball Club recreates how base ball was played in the 1860’s.
A gentleman’s game… with no gloves!

In 2007 the Welkin Club was recreated as part of Port Huron’s Sesquicentennial celebration. In their inaugural year the Welkins played other vintage clubs from around the state and participated in Greenfield Village’s “World’s Tournament of Vintage Base Ball,” a re-creation of the 1867 tournament the original Welkins played in. In their first year the Welkins managed to duplicate the record of the original 1867 club with a solitary victory.
