Baseball, in its purest form, is simple. The game is fun. It can easily be played by children or adults, with a bat or a stick and a ball. It can be played in an open space or an expansive stadium. But wherever played and however expressed, baseball’s traditions touch us all. Unlike any other sport, the game links us to our past. The National Pastime Museum provides a different and visually creative way to explore our great game on the World Wide Web through rare and wonderful artifacts, images and relics. It is our hope that the public will not only derive delight, but will learn a bit about our great game and ultimately about we as a people.
