Elkton Eclipse outfielder Glyn "Hammer" Richards, left, of Mt. Ephraim, N.J., hits a pitch during a game during the Loudoun Preservation Society's 19th Century Baseball Day at the Oatlands, in Leesburg, Va., Sunday, June 12, 2011. The bats they used during the 1860s era are a little different from today's bats. Still made of wood, the vintage era bats had a thicker handle but a more narrow barrel.
