Join the Brooklyn Historical Society this Thursday for the opening of our new exhibition Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field. Through archives, photos and oral histories, the exhibition explores the connection between Ebbets Field, the Dodgers and the Brooklyn community. The exhibit highlights the history of the team and its fans by featuring BHS’ rich Dodgers collection that includes baseball cards, photographs of the field, ticket stubs, uniforms, seats from Ebbets Field, autographed baseballs, scorebooks from the 19th century, team photos and the famous Dodgers Banner from their 1955 World Series win. The exhibition is curated by students in Exhibition Laboratory, BHS’ after-school museum studies program. This event is free and open to the public.
Be the first to visit this fantastic exhibit and meet the student curators on Thursday, June 3!
