67 year-old Elkton Eclipse player Bill "Pockets" Freeland, from Cecil County, Md., tries to cool off with a cold wet towel between innings during their game against the Potomac Nine team during the Loudoun Preservation Society's 19th Century Baseball Day at the Oatlands, in Leesburg, Va., Sunday, June 12, 2011. The teams, part of the Mid Atlantic Vintage Baseball League, all wear the same style of uniforms that teams did in the 1860s, but they don't make their jerseys out of wool due to the heat. This is Freeland's third year playing in the league and he said he enjoys it more than softball leagues. "I'll keep playing this until I forget which way to run, then I may take up golf," he joked. Freeland was the oldest player on the field that day. (Drew Angerer/The Washington Times)
