Ft. Pulaski celebrates America with its past-time

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - To celebrate America this Independence Day, folks at Fort Pulaski took to the diamond for a game of the country's favorite past-time.

Fort Pulaski National Monument highlighted its weekend of activities Sunday, with an annual Civil War-style baseball game.

Participants had to pitch underhand, wear no gloves, and experience baseball as those in the 19th century did.

The fort's cannon crew also performed firing demonstrations throughout the evening.
