2. Opening Weekend: Basketball in the Bronx: Nine Innings Of Bronx Basketball 

Baseball has played a central role in the lives of Bronx residents for generations. The sport and the borough grew simultaneously and both continue to evolve in the 21st century. Each of nine “innings” that make up this exhibit portrays a different aspect of the game. It begins with the Unions, who played in Morrisania in the 19th century, and with Esteban Bellan, the first professional Latin American baseball player who was a student at Fordham University in 1863. The exhibit also includes material about:

• The history of Latino Baseball in El Bronx thru Club Cubano Interamericano of Melrose

• Bronx Little League teams from Hunts Point, Crotona, Riverdale and Van Nest

• College baseball at Fordham and NYU

• Baseball alumni from the Bronx

• The ninth and final inning of the exhibit features family photographs from the 1950s to the present day, submitted by the public through an open call.

Starting Friday, April 13, a trolley will run from the businesses along River Avenue and across 161 St to the Bronx Museum, and back to Yankee Stadium – courtesy of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation and SBS’ Avenue NYC program.

On Sunday, April 15 at 3pm, visitors can hear Arlene Howard and Ralph Wimbish read from their book Elston and Me: The Story of the First Black Yankee.
