Play Ball! Green-Wood’s Baseball Legends

March 31, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

It’s time, once again, for one of the greatest rites of spring: baseball’s opening day! Join baseball historian Tom Gilbert, in conversation with Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, for this virtual tour of the many men interred at the Cemetery who pioneered the National Pastime—including Henry Chadwick, dubbed the “Father of Baseball” by President Theodore Roosevelt; Charles Ebbets, who owned the Brooklyn Dodgers and built the legendary Ebbets Field; and James Creighton, baseball’s first national superstar; among others. Get ready to play ball!

This conversation is part of our series of virtual programs about the history of Green-Wood and its permanent residents, Zooming in on History.

$9 / $4 for members. A Zoom link will be in your confirmation email upon registration.
