History of baseball comes to life during ‘Festival in the Park’

WILLARD — Willard Park is to host a vintage base ball game at 7 p.m. Friday during the annual Festival in the Park.

The Willard Sparks are to compete against The Willard Flash — which consists of high school baseball players, softball players and parents.

The game is to take the audience back to the roots of the sport as it was played in the 1860s.
