Fort Sill needs players for historic baseball game

Fort Sill_Press Release_The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark & Museum is seeking volunteer players for its annual historic base ball (old spelling) game to be played on the southwest corner of the Parade Ground during the afternoon of July 12.  This museum education program is from the pages of Oklahoma and Fort Sill history featuring the 19th century base ball games as played on the original ball diamond.  The hotly contested competition between the Fort Sill Cannonballs and the Fort Sill Indians will take place from 1 - 3 P.M. and the public is invited.

Fort Sill's Museum is looking to recruit 9-12 players for the Fort Sill Cannonball team who will be willing to brave the Saturday afternoon heat and do battle with the Fort Sill Indians.  Applicants must be active duty military to qualify for the team.  The Native American team is composed of Kiowa, Comanche, Apache and other tribal members who are mostly descended from the original soldier/players from more than 100 years ago.  Vintage uniforms and equipment will be provided by the museum for this face-off and appropriate historically designed medals will be awarded.  A noon meal for the team members and other participants in the event will be provided.

If you are interested in participating in this most unusual event you are encouraged to apply at the museum administrative office located at 437 Quanah Road, Fort Sill, OK or phone (580) 442-5123.   Deadline for receiving applications is Monday, June 30.
