Baseball tour

 

This event is sold out. Make sure you never miss out on tickets again! Green-Wood members get access to tickets weeks before the general public. Join today.

 

Batter up! To ring in the 2016 season, we’ll welcome Tom Gilbert, member of the Society for Baseball Research (SABR – the folks who brought you “Moneyball”) and author of a new book on baseball’s formative years, 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 markers 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.

 

$15 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$20 for nonmembers.
