Description

This exhibition weaves together America’s favorite pastime, baseball, and its role in creating a national identity. The story of Jewish immigration and minority communities are integral to baseball’s role in teaching American culture. Through films, footage, photographs, and a database of American Jewish ballplayers, "Chasing Dreams: Baseball and Becoming American" explores how baseball historically played a crucial role in understanding, and sometimes challenging, what it means to be American.
