Baseball as it used to be played will be on display this coming Saturday at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene.

Two teams called the IronCutters and the Cowtown 9 will take part in the annual game, wearing 19th century-style uniforms and playing by the old rules.

Library deputy director Tim Rives said spectators will see a game that's different from modern baseball.

There's no sliding, no base-stealing and absolutely no swearing. And outfielders can make an out if they catch a fly ball on one bounce.

Rives said one thing hasn't changed — the August weather. It's likely to be hot, and the public should bring sun screen.
