Play Ball! A Celebration of America’s Game at History Colorado Center
posted by: Amber Johnson
Celebrate “America’s Game” with Play Ball! This new exhibit is on display at the History Colorado Center now through September 30, 2018, where you can see classic baseball artifacts—from Babe Ruth to the Blake Street Bombers.
Treasured memorabilia and iconic photographs bring the past to life through stories that begin on the ball field and echo through American history. Size up your hand against Babe Ruth’s. Find the nails Ty Cobb used to hold his favorite bat together, and admire the glove flashed by Willie Mays to make some of the game’s most memorable catches. See the uniform Joe DiMaggio wore in his final World Series and a receipt for roses he sent to Marilyn Monroe. And much, much more—these are just a few of the one-of-a-kind items on view in Play Ball!
Opening with the 2018 baseball season, Play Ball! showcases the Marshall Fogel Collection, one of the greatest sets of baseball artifacts ever assembled outside the Hall of Fame. This celebration of our national pastime is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate baseball’s storied history in a way you’ve never seen it before.
Cost for the History Colorado Center is $12 for an adult, $10 for students (ages 13-22 with valid student ID) and children (6-12) are $8.
