GLOVERSVILLE -- It was the perfect weather for a little baseball on Sunday. But it wasn't your ordinary game being played at Parkhurst Field.

The Parkhurst Field Foundation hosted a vintage baseball game. Each team wore throwback uniforms, and played by MLB rules from 1886. One man was thrilled to play on the same field his great-grandfather played with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
