The Lambertville Historical Society is pleased to announce that it will hold a special program on Sunday,
September 10 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at the Pittore Justice Center, 25 S. Union St., Lambertville. The
program will feature a presentation by Scott “Snuffy” Hengst, a professional researcher, amateur
genealogist, and 19th century base ball enthusiast. Hengst will speak about the origins and early matches
of base ball in Lambertville and the greater region.
Hengst lives in Lambertville and spent nearly seven years working at Major League Baseball (today it is
one word but in the 19th century it was styled as “base ball”). He has been an active ballist for the
Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club since 2010. You can follow his occasional postings on the
Lambertville Logan Base Ball Club at facebook.com/LambertvilleLoganBBC.
As a part of its commitment to making its programs available to all, LHS can provide a sign language
interpreter at this event. Advance notice required, please contact LHS no later than August 30, 2017 to
request this service.
