If you're a die-hard baseball fan and just can't get enough of America's favorite pastime, head on over to the Pasadena Central Library or Los Angeles Central Library and check out the exhibits they have on view.
The exhibition from July 1-July 31, 2008 at the Pasadena Central Library features highlights of the Baseball Reliquary's exhibitions over the last ten years at libraries, galleries and community centers throughout Southern California. "Women in Baseball: There's No Place Like Home (Plate)," "Baseball's Time Machine: Photography at the Field of Dreams," and "Life after Baseball: From Espionage to Evangelism" are just a small portion of the samplings on display.
In addition to the exhibit is the Shrine of the Eternals 2008 Induction Day ceremony, to be held in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at the Pasadena Central Library on Sunday, July 20, 2008. The doors will open at 1:30 pm, the festivities begin at 2:00 pm, and admission is open to the public and free of charge. The inductees will be Buck O'Neil, Emmett Ashford, and Bill Buckner. Terry Cannon, founder and Executive Director of the Baseball Reliquary (and graduate of the PCC Library Technology program) said it's always a standing-room-only event. So it's my recommendation that one arrive early to get good seating and the chance to mingle.
From July 12-November 9, 2008, at the Los Angeles Central Library on the first floor galleries, the "Play Ball! Images of Dodger Blue, 1958-1988" exhibit can be seen as well.
