Bullets to Bats: Baseball in the Civil War

Saturday, May 18 at 2 p.m.

Please join us at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum for a presentation by Mansfield State Historic Site Park Manager, Scott Dearman.  Dearman will trace the evolution of baseball from the  mid-nineteenth century through the Civil War. From the early days of “Town Ball” to the current game of baseball, the game has evolved into “America’s Pastime.”  The American Civil War played a major role in the proliferation and mass appeal of the game.  Admission is free and open to the public.
