Celebrate Black History Month with a (Ball)field Trip

Got a baseball fan in your house who can hardly wait for Spring Training? Combine that love of baseball with a celebration of Black History Month at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Their permanent exhibit, Pride and Passion: The African-American Baseball Experience, details the history of African-Americans in baseball, from the time of the Civil War to present-day.

You'll also learn about Hall-of-Famers like Josh Gibson, known to many as the "black Babe Ruth." Gibson, who had a batting average of over 400 and regularly belted the ball more than 500 feet, was denied the opportunity in the late 1930s to try out for the Major Leagues because of his race.

Your family will also learn more about Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play in the Major Leagues.

And once you've gotten your fill of this fascinating aspect of history, the kids can blow off some steam in the Sandlot Kids' Clubhouse, an interactive experience for the whole family.

That ought to get your youngest fans through winter, especially in combination with a few visual reminders that baseball season is never far away! We've got a number of pieces of baseball artwork for kids' rooms. Check out Aaron Christensen's work for a sample of baseball-themed canvas wall art.

Play ball!
