A vintage baseball game continued West Virginia's birthday celebrations.

Re-enactors put on the old replica uniforms from the 1800s.

The men took the field as the "Civil War re-enactors" and played the Ohio Village Muffins.

Until 1875 players didn't use gloves, so neither did the guys Saturday.

Players say it's fun to re live the game as it was once played.

The Muffins won the game, 19-to-2.

The Muffins are one of over 200 vintage baseball teams across the country.
