Baseball is a national pastime. It holds a special place in the hearts of many Americans. Why? An interactive look at the history – did you know that the first baseball diamond was in Hoboken? – and an exploration of why many associate so many memories and emotions with the game will spark conversation and camaraderie. Bring the peanuts and the crackerjacks and learn more about why many think so fondly back to that first game.
