Ever tried to catch a baseball bare-handed? Well, 150 years ago that's how the sport was played. These days, the Chesapeake and Potomac Base Ball Club keeps the vintage game alive with matches throughout the summer. With steamy wool uniforms and battered hands, this sport is not for the faint of heart!
