Elkton Eclipse outfielder Glyn "Hammer" Richards, left, of Mt. Ephraim, N.J., and Potomac Nine pitcher J.D. "Buckeye" Almond, of Marshall, Va., at right, do the "bat toss" before the start of a game during the Loudoun Preservation Society's 19th Century Baseball Day at the Oatlands, in Leesburg, Va., Sunday, June 12, 2011. The bat toss is one of unique parts of 1860s era baseball. Instead of the home team always taking the field first (often in this era the teams had no "home" or "away" field), they did an activity called the bat toss. The players start with their hands at the bottom of the bat and alternate their hands up the bat and whichever player gets to the top first and is able to cup the knob wins. The winner of the bat toss chooses if his team will field or hit first. (Drew Angerer/The Washington Times)
