Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience

When: Feb. 9-March 9 2012

In his 1966 Hall of Fame induction speech, Ted Williams famously called out the total lack of Negro League players in the Hall "who are not here only because they weren't given a chance." It was five more years before those players who played separately and unequally were so honored. Of course, the first idea was to award them something other than full Hall membership. But further and better attempts at recognition brought a permanent exhibit about the Leagues, and now its traveling version hits the library at Colorado State University-Pueblo (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo, colostate-pueblo.edu). The Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience is open through March 16 and features lectures, special events and 1,000 square feet of memorabilia that Teddy Ballgame would just love. — Bryce Crawford
