"America's Game," the second of 10 GREAT MUSEUMS webisodes featuring The National Baseball Hall of Fame, uses footage from the shoot for the original episode "Home Base."
Each webisode explores a unique aspect of the legendary museum in Cooperstown, NY with never before seen footage. Watch now and in less than 5 minutes, you will discover the baseball lingo to describe presidential election in which Abe Lincoln won; 19th century games played with only one ball; obsessed fans of the 19th century; a description of the Baseball Hall of Fame contents; the early dress of baseball players (flannel worn in the heat of summer!); and the baseball clubs of yesteryear, including the New York Knickerbockers!
