Area residents gathered Sunday, Aug. 6 at Parkhurst Field for the Vintage Baseball Game and Field of Dreams Capital Campaign. The event included an All Star vintage game between the Buckskins and the Glovers, two teams who originally faced off in the late 1800s. Each team wore throwback uniforms and was made up for local Little League players. A second vintage game was held between the local JAGs team with a roster featuring former Gloversville Little League players and Whatley Pioneers of Massachusetts using vintage jerseys and MLB rules from 1886. One of the few remaining Gloversville Glovers baseball players, Michael Dante, 1951’s Ralph Vitti, was inducted into the Fulton County Baseball and Sports Hall of Fame. Assemblyman Marc Butler also presented a $500,000 Economic Development Council Award from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office to the Parkhurst Field Foundation to support its $2.3 million plan.
