Amish baseball game: part 1.

The first post i had done on Amish Stories was at this same location which has proved to be a very popular spot for the Amish to have baseball game's, and to be honest like the first post that i had done  i pretty much just stumbled on to this game as it was in progress. I did notice that on both teams most were wearing fire dept Tee shirts from 2 different fire stations, so i believe what we are watching is  just a friendly game between volunteer fire personal.(part 2 next FridayRichard
I wonder what the changes will be to Amish life when this young man grows-up?
They came by foot, buggy and by scooter!
An Amish version of box seats!

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
