About Us


Present Day Buckeyes

The Columbus Buckeyes are a vintage base ball team from the capital city of Ohio, playing by the rules of 1867. The team is made up of family members and friends representing base ball of the 19th century. 



Our home games are played at Scioto Audubon Metro Park at 400 W. Whittier St. Columbus, Ohio. All games are free! Part competitive yet gentlemenly played, part show, all fun! Bring a chair, enjoy the game, take a swing of the bats after the game, meet the players and learn about base ball of the 19th century.



The Columbus Buckeyes were the first professional base ball team of Columbus, Ohio in 1883. Although their team only lasted 2 years, while playing in the American Association, the love affair with America's past time was born.
