With temperatures in the mid to upper 90s, Elkton's Glyn "Hammer" Richards, of Mt. Ephraim, N.J., has sweat drip off the bill of his cap during the Loudoun Preservation Society's 19th Century Baseball Day at the Oatlands, in Leesburg, Va., Sunday, June 12, 2011. Even though the uniforms in the 1860s used to be made of wool, the players wear lighter material to help fight the heat during hot summer games. (Drew Angerer/The Washington Times)
