Sliding Baseball Across Williamstown

Spring is in the air, and that means it’s time for baseball!  Williamstown is a small New England town, but a number of talented athletes grew up here and have made their way to the professional sphere of baseball.   “Sliding Baseball Across Williamstown,” an offshoot of the “Baseball in the Berkshires” exhibit, will surprise visitors with the wealth of information about the town’s many baseball players.
Frank Grant, one of the first black players in professional baseball,
was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2006.
This exhibit details the rich history of baseball in the Berkshires and focuses on Williamstown’s contribution to this story. The exhibit looks at the many professional baseball players who grew up in town as well as college and amateur teams in town. The exhibit will also feature the players and coaches, the Little League teams, and the American Legion and Town Teams from Williamstown.  Williamstown High School and Mount Greylock Regional High School will also be featured.  Sports enthusiasts and fans of local history will enjoy this remarkable exhibit!
