Whether in the barrios or the big leagues, baseball goes hand-in-hand with cultural identity. Baseball diamonds have long served as a place for people to come together to express their cultural traditions.

¡Pleibol! In the Barrios and the Big Leagues / En los barrios y las grandes ligas will reveal how generations of Latinos/as - players, fans, owners, and managers - have helped make baseball the game it is today.

Organized by the Smithsonian Institution  Exhibition Service in collaboration with the National Museum of American History.

This exhibition received generous support from the Cordoba Corporation and Linda Alvarado, and federal support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.

Additional local support provided by AZ Humanities, ADARA Wealth Management and media sponsor Tucson Lifestyle Magazine.
