LEE, Mass. -- The Baseball in the Berkshires Museum will open its summer 2023 exhibit at the Lee Premium Outlets on Thursday, July 6.
Visitors will have a chance to learn about stories rooted in baseball diamonds and corn fields from Sheffield to North Adams.
"With summers short and winters long, we find that the history of Berkshire County baseball is not only rich with numerous major and minor league players but also many recreational players," museum director Larry Moore said. "These athletes’ dreams are fulfilled on the numerous local diamonds. Additionally, there are many famous players with connections to the Berkshires. Griffey, Maddox, Ruth, Belanger, Hermanski, Gehrig and Dimaggio to name just a few."
The exhibit will be open Thursdays thru Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. and is located in the old Dress Barn space across from Calvin Klein.
Baseball in the Berkshires is looking for volunteers from high school age thru our Golden Agers to help meet and greet the exhibit’s visitors. Baseball in the Berkshires may be contacted by email (email@example.com) or phone (413-822-6738).
