Join us for a private docent-led tour of the Baseball Americana exhibit at the Library of Congress. The tour examines baseball then and now as it relates to players, teams and the communities it creates. Highlights include selections from the Library’s extensive collection of early baseball cards, the 1857 “Laws of Baseball” on view in their first major exhibition, and items on loan from the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The visit also includes a brief introductory tour of the art, architecture, and history of the Library of Congress building, along with its history and modern day work. The tour, which is free, lasts approximately one hour. Attendees will need to arrive 15 minutes early in order to go through security.
