The Ohio Cup, 1860s Style

Posted on 31st August 2011

In anticipation for my first Ohio Cup over at the Ohio Village, I came across a small article from Atlanta that advertises the event. It reminded me of how big the Cup is. The article states that there are around 30 teams involved. I received the playing schedule, and there are 5 fields with a total of 42 games played on Saturday and 29 on 4 fields, Sunday. The event is not small by any means by these numbers. A quick look at some of the teams playing in the event, shows people travailing as far as North Carolina and Missouri. Looks like this is a bigger deal then I thought.
