Women of Baseball

Women of Baseball

The Arlington Museum of Art is proud to host the exhibition: Women of Baseball, a retrospective of women’s participation in America’s past time. The creation of an all-girls team at Vassar College in 1866 introduced women to the sport that had been solely enjoyed by men. In addition to the establishment of an all-female league during the WWII era, the 20th Century saw a significant number of women playing professionally alongside men in the male dominated sport.

Beginning September 6th, the Museum will have in excess of 48 photographs and related graphics, as well as over 15 artifacts documenting the history of women’s contributions to the major leagues. We have also been fortunate enough to establish a great relationship with the original curator of the exhibit, an archivist from St. Mary’s  College in Notre Dame, Indiana, who has generously agreed to provide us with additional pieces for us to include in our presentation.

As with our previous exhibits, the Museum will be offering accompanying events with the Women of Baseball. Stay tuned for these events.


Admission to the exhibit is $8 for adults; $5 for students and seniors; FREE to members and children 12 and under, with an adult.
