Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum celebrated Fathers Day with a historical display of America’s favorite past time in the mansion’s yard. The New York Mutuals — re-enactment actors from Old Beth Page Village Restoration — played the Manetto Hill Surprise with 1864 baseball rules, balls, bats, and uniforms.
