Celebrate the history of Latinos and African Americans and the diversity in baseball from the Negro Leagues to the Major Leagues while you explore the impact that historic League Park (in Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood) has had on baseball and on the city of Cleveland.
Youth sports clinics with former pro players Jim “Mudcat” Grant, Joe Azcue and John McDonald are followed by games played on the League Park field.
