Event Description

Morven Museum & Garden will be hosting an exhibit on New Jersey baseball, 1855-1915 which will tell the story of the state's important role in the history of early organized baseball through artifacts, text, images and other visuals. The exhibit will describe the nature of the first New Jersey baseball clubs, the differences between 19th century baseball and the modern game and cover areas of special interest such as the African-American experience and women's participation. The exhibit will be interactive and will also offer educational opportunities plus demonstrations with hands-on possibilities. Simultaneous with opening the exhibit, Morven will publish a companion book which will bring the story of early New Jersey baseball to a wider audience and allow for more in depth understanding.
