At the Museum, our 4th of July was spent playing the all-American sport of baseball! We invited families to stop by and make their own baseball cap, design a pennant, play some baseball bingo, and even hit some home runs!
Check out some of the fun photos from our Baseball Family Day held in conjunction with the exhibition: We Are the Ship
Just like baseball fans get foam-fingers to cheer for their favorite teams, we gave visitors the opportunity to decorate their own “foam”-finger!
We were fortunate to have music studies students from TTU volunteer their time to play classic baseball hits, like “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
We were so lucky to have “Hitters Row” there that afternoon to play some baseball with kids, and teach them the proper way to hit and throw, too!
One of the most fun stations was the “7th Inning Stretch” where kids (and adults) could participate in an obstacle course! They had to spin around the bat 5 times, crawl through a tube, jump through a latter, and weave in-and-out of cones before racing to finish line.
This was so much fun to watch! The kids had a blast!
In the afternoon, guests from the College Baseball Hall of Fame joined us for a Black College Baseball panel discussion, very interesting.
Take Me Out to the Museum was a great success! We hope visitors enjoyed playing some baseball while checking out our interesting travel exhibition: We Are the Ship. We hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!
