During your group trip to Baltimore, you should consider checking out the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum. The museum presents the life and times of George Herman also known as Babe Ruth. He was Baltimore’s native son and became America’s first sports celebrity as well as an international icon. The Sports Legends Museum is located in the area. Visitors will have the opportunity to check out fascinating exhibits at both museums. George Herman was born in 1895. Times were rough in the Baltimore Harbor during that time period.
The exhibits at the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum are both fascinating and educational. One of the exhibits is known as The Ruthian Record. At the exhibit, group members will learn about Babe’s record as an amazing slugger, record-setting pitcher and even a school-age catcher. Another interesting exhibit is known as the Historic House exhibit. The group will have the opportunity to check out the upstairs bedroom of the baseball legend. Babe Batted Here is another fascinating exhibit for visitors to explore. There are artifacts on display such as a catcher’s mitt, a jersey, and a hymnal book that was used by Babe while attending St. Mary’s Industrial School in Baltimore.
The Sports Legends Museum has several interesting exhibits that focus on a variety of topics. Group members can see exhibits such as the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame, Amateur Baseball in Maryland, The Negro Leagues: A Baseball Legacy, and the Orioles Hall of Fame.
