Any leagues that still practice the traditional rules?
traditional Massachusetts rules? No DH? Wooden bats only? Spikes up on a slide? Dunks Box o' Joe on the bench?
A bunch of fighting, cussing, and questionable comments about your family members.
There are leagues that play using 19th century rules & equipment. I think they generally fall into two categories with the rules that were common in the 1860s or 1880s which have some key differences if I recall correctly. Here's an example:
Like the old rules where you could get somebody out by throwing the ball at them and there was only 60 feet between bases? Has anybody played that game in the past 150 years?
Looks like two in MA:
Mudville Base Ball Club
Westfield Wheelmen Base Ball Club
Essex Base Ball Club:
Looks like they play by 1864 rules.
I would say no, seeing as how Mookie and Xander left.
