Baseball fans have an incredible variety of baseball teams to choose from to catch a fantastic game along the South Shore.

Vintage Baseball

Watch the Deep River Grinders vintage baseball team play according to rules written in 1858, when courtesy prevailed on and off the playing field. The Grinders play barehanded and follow the rules of gentlemanly behavior - no spitting, arguing, cursing or wagering. It is common for members to encourage and applaud the good play of both teams. Grinders' home games are played at Grinder Field at Deep River County Park, across the river from Wood's Mill. Games are free and suitable for the entire family.
