Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American
June 14 - September 7, 2015

Visitors to the exciting exhibit Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American, will explore baseball's legends and myths, its heroes and flops, its struggles and its moments of triumph. The exhibition will celebrate well-known Jewish heroes such as Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax and iconic baseball pioneers like Jackie Robinson, Joe DiMaggio, Roberto Clemente, and Ichiro Suzuki, as well as baseball's extended family of vendors, team owners, minor leaguers, amateur players, scouts, broadcasters, journalists, novelists-and especially, fans. Consisting of a core panel exhibit developed by and on loan from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia and augmented with artifacts on loan from local organizations and individuals, this engaging and informative exhibit explores how baseball has served as an arena in which values, identity, ethnicity, and race have been projected, contested, and occasionally solidified.
