The Smithsonian Institution has launched a multiyear collecting initiative, "Latinos and Baseball: In the Barrios and the Big Leagues " to identify artifacts that reflect the social and cultural influence of the game on Latino communities and this is only Ohio collecting event. Smithsonian curators will be at the Museum to consider artifacts for possible inclusion in future exhibits. The public is invited to bring items such as baseball equipment, stadium signs, game memorabilia, uniform jerseys, tickets as well as food vendor sign, home movies and period photographs relating to Latino baseball across the U.S and in Puerto Rico. Oral histories and personal narratives will also be considered.
