No Ghost Hunt in December

 

Join the monthly Ghost Hunt of Old Bisbee where guests are taken into

haunted locations around town to figure out who is haunting these buildings

and why!  Guests will be trained to use equipment, including EMF Detectors,

K2 Meters, IR Cameras, Digital Voice Recorders plus much more!  After

the investigation, data will be downloaded and sent on a DVD to each participant.

Then, you can analyze it for paranormal activity!  All guests will have access to

a private blog that will allow them to share any paranormal data they collected

on their own equipment or data found while analyzing the DVD’s.

This special Ghost Hunt includes a training session, use of equipment,

investigations of haunted locations around town, access to the private

blog and a potential evidence DVD.

 

The cost is $40 per person and limited to 10 guests. Begins at 6:30 PM

and lasts approximately 4 hours.  No child under the age of 12 is permitted

unless it is a private ghost hunt.  Private Ghost Hunts of Old Bisbee may be

scheduled in advance.  Space is limited; reservations are required!

from the Arizona Territories Vintage Base Ball league and the Colorado Vintage Base Ball

Association will gather at historic Warren Ballpark on Saturday and Sunday, April 11 and 12

to take part in the Sixth Annual Copper City Classic Vintage base Ball Tournament. The home

team - the Bisbee Black Sox - are off to a good start this season and are hoping to claim the

tournament championship. Come cheer them on – or cheer on your own favorite team – as

ballists wearing vintage-style uniforms play the game by 1860 rules.                                                                                          

 

Honoring ‘Scrap Iron’ and an Outstanding Lawman

This year’s tournament will honor two outstanding athletics who played baseball at Warren Ballpark

in years past: Clint “Scrap Iron” Courtney and Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. Clint Courtney began his

professional baseball career as the catcher for the 1947 Bisbee Yanks before moving up the ladder

to a colorful and successful career in the big leagues during the 1950s and 60s. Clarence Dupnik,

a 1954 Bisbee High School graduate, was a star third baseman for the Pumas before beginning a

distinguished career with the Tucson Police Department and as Pima County’s longest-serving Sheriff.

 

Added attraction: The Post Game Blues

Jim “Mudcat” Grant, ace American League pitcher, baseball historian and musician, is planning to return

for the Post Game Blues concert. Last year Mudcat missed the tournament to receive the prestigious

Jackie Robinson Foundation Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Face of Adversity on the

same date. Join Mudcat along with Tucson’s Cholla High School Blues Standards and Bisbee’s own

Russell “Cat Daddy” Gillespie and his 12-Barz Blues Band for Saturday evening’s Post-Game Blues

concert at the Stock Exchange Saloon and Grill in historic Brewery Gulch.

 

Tickets are $10 per day or $15 for both days. Children 12 and under are free with an adult ticket.

Active military are free on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased on-line or at the gate. Gates open at
