First Wednesday Speaker Series: A Social History of Baseball

Wednesday, July 3, 2019, 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm
402 Main St, Greenfield, MA

Join us for a fascinating history of America’s game with UMass Lowell professor, Frank Morris. Learn how baseball galvanized a divided nation in the 19th century and developed into “America’s Pastime” as an allegory to our cultural identity in the decades to come. Includes a history of the Boston Red Sox and a look at how the game both reinforced and challenged cultural themes over time.
