From Intercourse in Lancaster county, Amish having a baseball game along with a recipe.


If anyone has ever caught a baseball game involving the Amish will know that they take baseball pretty seriously, so I've had the pleasure of witnessing a few of their games. This was taken at a baseball field that most of the Amish go to when they are in the mood to play baseball, which seems to be frequent . If you have watched them play compared to when the English play, and that would be its fairly quiet with a subdued cheering and banter with an air of politeness. If you should ever get a chance to watch one of these baseball games you will owe it to yourself to stop and sit for a spell, and you will see a very different kind of game.

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
