Play Ball!

A Celebration of America's Game

Now in Extra Innings!

In honor of an excellent Colorado Rockies’ season, we’ve gone into extra innings! We’ve extended the run of Play Ball! A Celebration of America’s Game through January 6!

See classic baseball artifacts—from Babe Ruth to the Blake Street Bombers.

Treasured memorabilia and iconic photographs bring the past to life through stories that begin on the ball field and echo through American history. Size up your hand against Babe Ruth’s. Find the nails Ty Cobb used to hold his favorite bat together, and admire the glove flashed by Willie Mays to make some of the game’s most memorable catches. See the uniform Joe DiMaggio wore in his final World Series and a receipt for roses he sent to Marilyn Monroe. And much, much more—these are just a few of the one-of-a-kind items on view in Play Ball!

Play Ball! showcases the Marshall Fogel Collection, one of the greatest sets of baseball artifacts ever assembled outside the Hall of Fame. This celebration of our national pastime is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate baseball’s storied history in a way you’ve never seen it before.

The “Holy Grail” of Baseball Cards Makes an Encore December 26-30!
