Baseball’s legends and myths, its heroes and flops, its struggles and its moments of triumph tell our national story. From Little League to Major League, this exhibition explores the central role the sport has played in the identity of Jews and other minority communities.
Chasing Dreams: Baseball and Becoming American was created by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia and made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence. Major support was also provided by the Steven A. and Alexandra M. Cohen Foundation; the Richard A. and Susan P. Friedman Family Foundation; the Annette M. and Theodore N. Lerner Family Foundation; the Marc and Diane Spilker Foundation; Leesa & Leon Wagner; The Wagner Family Foundation; Harriet and Larry Weiss; Judy and Fred Wilpon; and Sam Wisnia.
