Women of Baseball Exhibit at AMA

The Arlington Museum of Art presents Women of Baseball, a retrospective of women's participation in America's past time. The creation of an all-girls team at Vassar College in 1866 introduced women to the sport that had been solely enjoyed by men. In addition to the establishment of an all-female league during the WWII era, the 20th Century saw a significant number of women playing professionally alongside men in the male dominated sport.

The Women of Baseball exhibit begins with a member's reception from 7-9 pm, Friday September 6, 2013 and will run through October 20, 2013. More information on the exhibit and other events (such as lectures) will soon be available on the Arlington Museum of Art's website. More information about the museum's hours and admissions are also available.
