Home Runs & Heartaches illustrates the story of baseball as it crossed paths with the railway system. Train passengers and baseball fans became synonymous as the Texas Electric Railways system made travel to the games cheap and accessible. Such was the popularity of the correlation that some city-based teams built their baseball stadiums next to the train station.
This exhibit, designed by Plano Conservancy co-director Jeffrey Campbell, features informative panels, authentic baseball uniforms, and vintage baseballs.
Home Runs & Heartaches is currently our featured exhibit! It will be running until November 17, 2017.
