Mobile Exhibit From Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Visits Erickson Alumni Center

Posted: Updated:

Sunday in Morgantown, a mobile exhibit from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum opened at the Erickson Alumni Center. 

The exhibition features photographs and bilingual text, as well as videos and artifacts focusing on the connection between the Negro Leagues and Spanish-Speaking Countries. 
The traveling exhibit is dedicated to the memory of Minnie Minoso, a baseball player known as the 'Cuban Comet.' 

The West Virginia University Baseball Team was in attendance for this special event. 
"We've created kind of a mini museum. I have a lot of my personal artifacts and other people have contributed things to that and so what we've done is create somewhat of a histology of the Negro Leagues and how the Latino influence came about, and the relationship between the Negro Leagues and the Latino players," said Robert Waterson, Director of the Center for Democracy and Citizenship Education. 

The Exhibit will be open at the Erickson Alumni Center through October 28th.
