ABOUT THE CLASSIC
On June 26th, 2016, we invite you to come play baseball with one of America's legends: Charlie Hustle. The Classic is a 1959 reenactement of a baseball game played by Charlie Hustle's Western Hills High School, organized by a small group of baseball fans. The game celebrates the legendary prowess a young Charlie Hustle exhibited during his youth on the very field he used. The game will occur immediately after Cincinnati retires #14, forever.
- The game is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Boldface Playground on June 26th.
- We are playing a reenactment game in 1950's era uniforms, with balls, gloves, spikes and hats to match. Donations of gear welcome.
- After the real Charlie Hustle is honored, take the #28 bus from downtown towards Anderson Ferry.
- The event is free to the public!
The Classic is organized by The Charlie Hustle Homestead Project, an initiative to preserve and honor the area surrounding Charlie Hustle's boyhood home, in Anderson Ferry, Ohio. A traveling museum of artifacts associated with Charlie Hustle's life will begin an international tour, with its first stop in New York City in August 20th through September 11th, 2016.
