Lah-De-Dah Base Ball
The popularity of base ball was spread during the Civil War as the Northern soldiers played ball wherever they went. After the war ended, base ball clubs were formed throughout the country.
Around 1882, the original Lah-De-Dahs organized, playing nearly a decade of baseball. The baseball team was sponsored by J.R. Jones in Waterford Michigan. Although the team lost more than they won, the citizens of Waterford thoroughly enjoyed watching the team play.
Today, the Lah-De-Dahs play against other teams, including the Greenfield Village Nationals, at
Greenfield Village on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer. Visit the Greenfield Village website
for more information and a schedule
of the games.
