Explore the exciting world of professional baseball through engaging hands-on activities in this educational exhibit that emphasizes the science and math behind the game.

Bat-and-ball games date to at least the 14th century. What we now call baseball began to take shape in the 1940’s under rules established by stock broker Alexander Cartwright (1820-1892).  Professional leagues began forming a decade later. Among the oldest continues teams is the Pittsburgh Pirates, whose history traces back to 1882. The Pirates have won the sport’s top honor, the World Series, five times.

Kids can pretend to be sportscasters or players and even learn how a baseball is made. They’ll also answer trivia questions, calculate batting averages and solve physics-themed challenges.

“Big League Fun!” is a traveling exhibit developed by the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum of Milwaukee in cooperation with and the express permission of Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. For more information, call (412) 322-5058.
