Baseball history on display at Discovery World
MILWAUKEE - Discovery World has unveiled a special exhibit in honor of America's favorite pastime, baseball.
Baseball is on the minds of many, especially after Monday's big Brewers Opening Day win.
Now, you can think baseball inside the lakeside museum.
Nicolas Luebstorf, 9, is learning about the sport with older brother Zachary and his cousin Evan.
"I like pitching in baseball, because it's really fun for me."
This new, limited display at Discovery World offers more than just a love for the sport.
"Baseball: Innovations That Changed the Game" shows how technology improved baseball.
You can see classic jerseys, signed jerseys and even bats and equipment from centuries ago.
"It's interesting to see what equipment has changed in the past, however many years," Zachary, 13, told TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady.
"It's definitely changed a lot."
That's the goal, according to Discovery World Executive Director Paul Krajniak.
"This exhibit really shows that there were really many, many people that built the game of baseball," said Krajniak.
A game that started with flat bats and no gloves, but changed into the game it is today with many creative ideas and new technologies.
"We're hoping that in this exhibit, we encourage young people and adults alike to realize I should put some time in thinking about a new idea or innovation," explained Krajniak.
This exhibit runs through May 19th. It's free for members and is included in general admission.
