#Spotlight - Diamond Dreams - Women In Baseball - Part 1 - Exhibit Intro

This week we debut our newest design in conjunction with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum - Diamond Dreams - Women In Baseball.


BACKGROUND


From BaseballHall.org


This popular exhibit traces women's roles in the game from 19th-century ballclubs to their present-day involvement – on the field and in baseball's front offices and broadcast booths.


The story is broken into three segments. In addition to the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (1943-1954), "On the Field" covers the history of women ballplayers from the mid-19th century to today. "In the Office" highlights the women who ran ballclubs. "Off the Field" features women employed in baseball and the cultural impact of the 1992 film A League of Their Own.


The exhibit includes original uniforms and equipment, photographs, text and multimedia, and features an interview with Penny Marshall, the director of A League of Their Own.


Other notable pieces include a cap worn by groundbreaking female umpire Pam Postema; a cap from Maria Pepe of Hoboken, N.J., whose landmark Supreme Court case opened the door for girls to play in Little League; and a hardhat worn by urban planner Janet Marie Smith, who helped design Baltimore's groundbreaking Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
