Negro Baseball League

HELLO, EAST SIDE! Beginning today straight from Cooperstown, New York, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the National Endowment for the Humanities brings you a traveling display of Negro League Baseball memorabilia. Kick off with a visit from Larry Tye, author of Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend. Reception at 5:30 PM, program at 6:30 PM. Then stay to enjoy Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience Exhibit. This lively display includes letters, schedules, photographs, posters, and other bits. Did I mention it's at the East Side Library? 2559 Hubbell Avenue. Lots of room to park. You'll like it!
