2011 Coltsville Vintage Base Ball League Champions



The Alert Fire Hose Company capped its inaugural season in the Coltsville Vintage Base Ball League (CVBBL) by capturing the 2011 championship. An air of gentlemanly sportsmanship permeated the atmosphere as the Alerts played Barnie’s Blue Boys in a spirited match on October 15, 2011.
