'Let Play Ball' exhibit opens at history museum

 

The San Mateo County History Museum in Redwood City opened a new exhibit, "Let's Play Ball," on Saturday, March 21.

Highlights of the exhibit include bats belonging to local legends Willie Mays of Atherton, Willie McCovey of Woodside, and Ty Cobb, who resided in Atherton from the early 1930s until his death in 1961.

The exhibit has jerseys, equipment, historic photographs and signed fan memorabilia relating to local baseball teams and players, according to Mitch Postel, president of the San Mateo County Historical Association.

"Let's Play Ball" depicts aspects of semi-professional and professional baseball from the 1900s to the present day. At least 92 teams existed at one time or another in San Mateo County, the museum said in its announcement.

The museum is located at 2200 Broadway in Redwood City. "Let's Play Ball" will run from March 21 to September 2016.
