Behind The Scenes: Mexican American Community Baseball Exhibition

 Mexican American Community Baseball Exhibition 

A glimpse of the rare artifacts that will be on display.

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley presents an exhibit depicting the Mexican American baseball tradition in the communities of the San Fernando Valley. 

The exhibit is based on the 2015 book entitled, Mexican American Baseball in the San Fernando Valley and includes rare photographs, historical artifacts and stories.

Mexican American residents, who could not play in traditional leagues created their own community baseball leagues organizing games and tournaments early in the 20th century, often gathering hundreds of spectators. These traditions cultural continue today.

The Museum invites the public to visit in the exhibition, opening on 
Thursday, October 13 from 5:30PM to 8:30PM, including a reception.

Additionally, the opening coincides with the New Sahara Galley's exhibit on 19th century political caricatures of Mexico, located in the same building. 

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is located at 
18860 Nordhoff St., Suite 204 Northridge, CA. 91324
