Of course I loved the information at the museum about the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, especially this bit about Dottie – one of my favorites in the A League of Their Own movie 🙂
Possibly our favorite part of the museum was this area where you could go in and swing bats that were actually used in a game by various players. Once we saw one of them was Johnny Bench, needless to say, Jeff had to give it a try. You had to wear batting gloves to keep the oils from your hands from getting on the bat, plus there was a plexiglass covering on the grip – but how cool is that? An actual bat used by Johnny Bench. Wow.
