Sponsored by the local chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research, Fort Concho is hosting a Baseball Heritage Symposium, on Saturday, February 29, in the Living History Stables Classroom.
The program includes several presentations with topics ranging from regional baseball history to the 1919 Chicago Back Box scandal. There will also be a minor league baseball quiz! If weather permits, the fort’s vintage baseball team will play a baseball game (1860s rules) on nearby the Parade Field.
The program is free to all, and will provide morning refreshments and coffee, as well as pizza for lunch.
Join us under the Texas night sky for an evening of storytelling and s’mores. Bring a blanket and/or chair, and listen to our storytellers recount untold tales about Fort Concho and the Texas frontier.
The event is free to all and will be held in the Courtyard (between Barracks 5/6). S’more will be provided.
Following an old army tradition, Fort Concho will fire artillery salutes in celebration of our nation’s birthday. The artillery salutes will take place on the hour near the Visitor Center at Barracks 1. There is no charge for the demonstrations; regular site admission will be in effect.
