Tom Fesolowich is setting baseball back 140 years.

They use replicas of original equipment, wear replica uniforms and play by authentic rules, which means no gloves, he says. Each summer, the Mutuals take to the road for a little barnstorming. Last year’s trip saw them go undefeated against teams from Philadelphia, Boston, Louisville, Chicago, St. Louis, Akron, Ohio, and Cincinnati.
