Anyone know what the rules are for 501C organizations?  What do they have to file with the IRS.  What happens if they are misusing 'non-profit' funds for personal use?  Should this information get turned over to authorities? 

I think this needs further investigation. Make sure you know, and I mean really know, the people you're working with.  There are crooks out there disguised as good parents taking your money and using it for their personal needs and not for non-profit fundraising.  It will all come out in time and some of the players will surprise and shock you - it's disgusting how they take advantage of others by lying and stealing.  Karma.  Do you hear me?  K-A-R-M-A....

Vintage Base Ball Team

Vintage Base Ball is base ball (yes, it was spelled two words prior to the 1880s) played by the rules and customs of the 19th Century. The players (sometimes called ballists) wear period reproduction uniforms, either with long trouser and shield shirt, or a later style lace shirt and knickers. They recreate the game based on rules and research of the various decades of the mid-to-late nineteenth century. The playing of vintage base ball can be seen at open-air museums, tournament re-enactments and city parks. It is played on both open grass fields and modern baseball diamonds. Spectators may consider vintage base ball to be a new sport, however, some clubs have been in existence since the 1980s. Vintage base ball is a reflection of how baseball existed at an earlier time.
