Seasonal Special Happenings

More than a Pastime

When: Tue., April 14 2015

For many minorities in America, baseball has offered a gateway to a better life. Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American, a new exhibit at the Maltz Museum, celebrates baseball heroes on the field and off. On view through September 7, the multimedia exhibition was organized by the National Museum of American Jewish History. It "looks at how issues of culture, race and community play out through the country’s national pastime." Expect to see related events, including short plays, film screenings, expert panels, player appearances, city tours and other programming related to baseball’s role in society, over the course of the summer. The opening celebration takes place tonight at 6. Tickets are $15, $10 for Maltz Museum members. (Niesel)
