Rained out

31 May 2015

Ah the rain… (Grumble, grumble) The match scheduled for today in Brooklyn against the Walker Tavern Wheels has been rescheduled for August 2nd at 2pm. Come see us at the Wahoo Invitational Tourney in Royal Oak on the 14th of June.


31 May 2015

On May 24th the Wahoos had the honor of hosting our dear friends the Dexter Union base ball club of Dexter Michigan.  Both teams put on a fine display of 1860’s base ball at its best!   The Wahoo defense and bats proved to be to much for the Union.  The Wahoos came away with their 3rd victory of the season!  Improving to 3-0!  Thank you Union for making the trip to Royal Oak.  We will see the Union again on June 28th in Dexter and at the Iron Clad Festival in Chelsea on July 18th.

Welkins are exceptional hosts

31 May 2015

On May 4th,  the Wahoos traveled to Beautiful Port Huron Michigan to play a match against our good friends the Welkin base club.   The Wahoos again came to play,  scoring tallies often and in bunches.  The Welkins threatened all day with runners in scoring position but the Wahoo defense was equal to the task.   The Wahoos finished the match with their second victory of the season improving to 2-0!  The game ball was awarded to Shoeless Jake for his brilliant play on defense and offense!  Way to impress Shoeless!  We look forward to hosting the Welkins in Royal Oak for the Wahoo Invitational on June 14th at Starr Jaycee park.

Wahoo season opener does not disapoint

6 May 2015

The Wahoo Home opener at Starr Jaycee Park was held today at 2pm against the Lah-De-Dah Base ball club of Greenfield Village. The Lah-De-Dah’s won the bat toss and opted to let the Wahoos strike first. And strike they did! The Wahoos shocked the Dahs by bating through their order and tallying 10 aces in the 1st inning! The Wahoo defense held stout, only allowing the Dahs to tally four aces in the first five innings. The fine fielding by the Dah’s held the Wahoos to only one more tally until the fifth inning. The Wahoo bats were on fire in the fifth! The Wahoos tallied an unprecedented fifteen more tally’s that inning. Including “Doc” Mark Schuster unleashing the beast and smashing a ball over the second baseman’s head. The ball just fell right and the bats couldn’t miss for the Wahoos today. Both clubs played fine ball but the Wahoos came away with a victory today. We thank our friends The Lah De Dahs for their fine play and sportsmanship. We look forward to playing them at the village in July.

May 18, 2014 Wahoo’s visit Richmond to Play the Bee’s

28 May 2014

The Wahoo Base Ball Club of Royal Oak enjoyed a great afternoon with the Richmond Bees Baseball Club today. A beautiful day, an impressive showing of Cranks in Richmond, and very much enjoyed meeting the Host Bee’s, on and off the Field. Both Clubs struck the ball equally well, and kept the sacks busy all afternoon. The Wahoo’s were able to prevail by an 18 – 6 tally count, but this does not show how much closer the match actually was. The fine Gentlemen of the Richmond Club are in their inaugural Season, and very soon will be a Team of Nines to be reckoned with. The visiting Wahoo’s very much appreciated their Host’s hospitality and post match BBQ. These 2 Ball Clubs will meet 2 more times in Royal Oak this Summer, where the results could be very different.

Wahoo’s versus Chelsea Monitors May 4, 2014

28 May 2014

(Monitor perspective) Good time today as the Monitors kicked off their 4th season. Great to be playing ball again after that merciless winter, especially against our good friends, the Wahoo BBC of Royal Oak. Pretty low-scoring contest, in soggy and very windy conditions. Plenty of fine defensive plays made by both clubs. The Monitors held a 3-1 advantage for most of the match, but 3 in the seventh and 4 in the eighth by the host club proved decisive. A nice Monitor rally in the bottom of the ninth netted 3 tallies against Wahoo relief pitcher Sawdust/TuefelHunden/PhilCoke made it interesting, but Royal Oak walked away 8-6 victors today. Fine match all, and thanks to the loyal cranks who stayed to watch on a deceptively chilly afternoon!

(Wahoo perspective)  A hard fought victory against our good friends from Chelsea was a fitting way to say goodbye to our old battle flag and introduce the new. It was our privilege to have used it for so many years. May it bring our former Captain, Tim Gorman many fond memory’s hanging over his mantle.

Please note, change of schedule for the Wahoo versus Wahoo match from Sept 15 to Sept 29th, 2013

13 September 2013
This match has been moved to the 29th.  It was originally scheduled for the 15th.  The Wahoo vs. Wahoo match is a fine end to the season.  No match offers so much of the 1860’s Base Ball experience as this match.  We hope to see you there.

Labor Day weekend camping and Ohio Cup, Sept 2013

13 September 2013


A very enjoyable couple of days with some fine Gentlemen, from our Club, The Chelsea Monitors, and the Welkins of Port Huron, as well as “Keeper” (Colette) Camping out near Columbus, Ohio. Thanks to Stains for “MCing” the Campfires both nights: 1st night) “How did you get into Vintage Base Ball” and your Base Ball background. Made for some great stories, and Beverage consumption. 2nd night theme) Favorite Experience at Tiger Stadium, which then parlayed into a very challenging Tigers / Baseball Trivia evening. Kent Hrbek was the answer to most questions. Then of course the Base Ball matches for the 2 days. The Wahoo’s did very well again, going 3 Wins, 2 losses, and another Tie again due to time limits. The 2 loses were by a 1-0, and 6-4 tally count. The Wins were quite close also, 5-3, 8-3, and 5-3 again. The Tie was against the same Club we tied 2 years ago at the Ohio Cup, The Addison Mountain Stars of Pennsylvania. The Ace count was 4-4. We thank the Ohio Historical Society, The Ohio Muffins Base Ball Club, and many others for being such fine hosts. We had a fine Meal on Saturday evening at the Ohio Village as well. Huzzah to my good friends on the Wahoo’s, and to everyone at the Ohio Cup Tournament !! I hope the injuries suffered by a couple of us are healed quickly, particularly to Dog House and Legs. Most of the rest of us are hopefully just kind of sore, and tired today. Take care, its a pleasure knowing you ALL.
