The first post i had done on Amish Stories was at this same location which has proved to be a very popular spot for the Amish to have baseball game’s, and to be honest like the first post that i had done  i pretty much just stumbled on to this game as it was in progress.

If anyone has ever caught a baseball game involving the Amish will know that they take baseball pretty seriously, so I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing a few of their games. This was taken at a baseball field that most of the Amish go to when they are in the mood to play baseball, which seems to be frequent . If you have watched them play compared to when the English play, and that would be its fairly quiet with a subdued cheering and banter with an air of politeness. If you should ever get a chance to watch one of these baseball games you will owe it to yourself to stop and sit for a spell, and you will see a very different kind of game.
