This exhibition examines the roles baseball has played in American culture and how it has become an integral part of American life, affecting everything from our language and literature, to communication and entertainment, to our health and diet. Themes include the rituals and myths of the game, immigration, nationalism, integration, technology, and popular culture. The approximately 200 objects in this exhibition are traveling from Cooperstown's National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for the first time.
