By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Baseball fans can catch a game at Waveland State Historic Site in Lexington that will recreate how the sport was played in the 1860s.

State tourism officials say the game between the Losantiville Black Stockings and Norwood Highlanders will be May 17.

Players will dress in recreated uniforms, with equipment made to standards of the period.

They'll use the rules, customs and terminology of baseball's earliest days.

The game starts at 2 p.m. EDT. Tickets for adults are $5, children ages 7-12 are $1 and children 6 and under are free. Tickets include a walking tour of the historic home.

Waveland State Historic Site is an antebellum house on the edge of Lexington.

Waveland is located near the corner of Man O' War and Nicholasville Road.
