Albany museum features baseball exhibit

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)— Monday marks opening day for Major League Baseball, a sure sign that winter coats and boots will soon be replaced by short sleeves and baseball caps. While not everyone can get to the ballpark, locals can relive the best of baseball at the Albany Institute of History and Art.

The museum is hosting a “Triple Play” of baseball history. The centerpiece, “America’s Game,” takes a look back at the sport’s early beginnings and greatest moments.

There are also two community supported exhibits. “Play Ball” looks at baseball in the Capital Region and highlights the stars that played here. The “Clubhouse” exhibit offers fans a look at some storied memorabilia, including an “e” from the front of Yankee Stadium’s facade.

The exhibit runs through July. More information can be found here on the museum’s website.
