Interested in joining the Farmers Branch Mustangs?
We are always eager to recruit new players, umpires, historically dressed spectators, bat boys and more! The Farmers Branch Mustangs consider themselves to be the premier vintage base ball team of North Texas. They host an annual Vintage Base Ball Festival, numerous games and All Play Balls, attend games and festivals across Texas, and more.
Team members on the Mustangs are required to complete volunteer paperwork through the Farmers Branch Historical Park. The only requirements are a willingness to learn and play by the 1860s rules of base ball and that team members be over 16 years of age. Men and women both play on the Mustangs, as well as players from across the age spectrum. Our oldest player was somewhere in his seventies, and our youngest is 16. All base ball positions are available, as well as opportunities for umpires, spectators, and those willing to speak to our audiences about 1860s rules and equipment. All team members are encouraged to join in at least four games and five practices a year and to RSVP if they are able or not able to attend a game or practice. Other volunteer opportunities and chances to promote the team are also available.
Team perks include:
an 1860s base ball nickname
a fun chance to exercise
interaction with vintage base ball teams from across North Texas and beyond
