Join the Cumberland County Historical Society and the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum from Baltimore Maryland for a SPECIAL Night of Baseball History as we close out our “Heart of a Champion: Sports on Cumberland County” Exhibit.
The Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum will bring select artifacts from their vast collection of Babe Ruth and 19th Century Baseball Collection. Guests will get a once in a lifetime opportunity to see personal and game used items associated with the “Sultan of Swat”, the great Babe Ruth. There will also be a talk on 19th Century Baseball and the “original” Baltimore Orioles club.
Lecture: “19th Century Baseball and the ‘Original’ Baltimore Orioles” – Mike Gibbons, Director Emeritus & Historian for the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum
The Baltimore Orioles were a 19th century American Association and National League team from 1882 to 1899. This storied club, which featured numerous future Hall of Famers, won three consecutive National League pennants in the mid-1890s, but were contracted out of the league after the 1899 season.
