The Athletic Base Ball Club of Philadelphia is a registered 501(c)3 educational nonprofit that focuses on educating the public about 1864 base ball and its precursors through live exhibitions and demonstrations. We pride ourselves on being as well-researched and historically accurate as possible. Click the button below to make a tax-deductible donation to support Athletic’s efforts.


Athletic’s home field is Memorial Field, which can be seen on the map above at Lansdowne Drive and Sweetbriar Lane in Fairmount Park. We’ll list locations of off-site home matches in advance of the dates if you’re interested in attending.
