Ontario County Historical Museum
Champeen Stretchers and Gandy Dancers
What does baseball and the railroads have in common? In the village of Manchester like in many railroad towns across this country the railroad yards were the place where men got together to play America's favorite pastime. This exhibit brings to life turn-of-the-century semi-professional baseball. See dozens of photographs, 3-D sculptures and life size paintings of the men and women who played baseball in this small Ontario County village. This exhibition was developed by Manchester's own Tim Munn and Randy Darrow and opens June 16th with a special celebration of America and reunion of industrial league baseball on Wednesday, July 1st.
