Baseball’s Outsiders: Race and Gender in the Early Years at Morven

Sep 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$10 – $15

In the 1890’s daring “bloomer girls” played baseball while the National Association of Base Ball Players rejected African Americans from playing in their leagues despite more than 200 black teams formed around the country after the Civil War.  Join Dr. Leslie Heaphy for an enlightening afternoon highlighting both women’s baseball before 1915 and 19th century black baseball in New Jersey. Dr. Heaphy, chair of the Women in Baseball Committee of the Society for American Baseball Research, is an Associate Professor of History at Kent State University at Stark and published author in the area of the Negro Leagues and women’s baseball. Museum galleries open before and until 4:00 p.m. following program.
