Part of baseball's lore lies in its artifacts, a rich lode of which constitutes "Baseball as America," the first-ever traveling exhibit from the Cooperstown, N.Y., Baseball Hall of Fame. The retrospective also testifies to the impact of technology on the game.
The exhibit will be at the American Museum of Natural History in New York until mid-August. It will travel to Los Angeles and eight other cities as part of a four-year tour. The facts that follow all relate to memorabilia on display.
