Batter up! To lead off the 2017 season, we’ll welcome baseball historian Tom Gilbert for a tour of the fascinating ball-playing pioneers interred at Green‑Wood. With Tom and Green‑Wood Historian Jeff Richman, you’ll visit the monuments and gravestones of Henry Chadwick, the Father of Baseball, who invented the game’s scoring system; James Creighton, baseball’s first national star; Charles Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers; the great hitter Charlie Smith; and many others who played a role in making baseball America’s National Pastime.

 

$25 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $30 for nonmembers.
