Vintage baseball photo: August 28, 2005 - Woodbury, CT. Eric “Express” Miklich of the NY Mutuals BBC. The 21st century NY Mutuals are committed to increasing the public's knowledge of 19th century base ball. Being hired for community and public events, such as this 1864 match in Woodbury, allows the Mutuals to demonstrate various styles of play in the 19th century and lecture on the history and rules regarding baseballs beginnings. The Umpire shown in the photo is Harry Higham who is the great grandson of Dick Higham, professional baseball player and the NY Mutuals' first captain. Photo by R.C. Shaw.
