Play Ball! Sports History in the Tri-Cities
On view through through September 26, 2023
Tri-Cities Historical Museum (TCHM)
Grand Haven, Michigan
TCHM’s “Play Ball!” exhibit showcases the scrappy beginnings of specialty clubs and teams, documents the astounding variety (dog sledding! sailing! equestrianism! curling!) of sports where youth and adults, women and men, amateurs and professionals, leave it all on the field in pursuit of athletic perfection. We highlight our hometown sports heroes who went on to make it in the big leagues.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the interactives included as part of this exhibit: a mini putting green, a recording of the Grand Haven 1954 football win over rival Holland, plus hands-on exploration of sports equipment textures, materials, and construction.
