2PM: Presentation by author Sue Macy

Explore our exhibitions with a scavenger hunt, stop by the studio to create your own team logo, and hear award-winning author Sue Macy talk about her book "The Story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League" in which she uncovered the true story behind the movie, A League of Their Own. Copies of Sue's books will be available for purchase and signing in the museum shop.

Visit with representatives from the Tri-City Valley Cats and play a fun inflatable game!  We will also be hosting the Bethlehem Braves and the NY Mutuals from Long Island for in-character Civil War era baseball demonstrations.  (No gloves, no equipment, authentic period uniforms, and replica baseballs & bats.)
