When in Anchorage, make plans to visit the Anchorage Museum where the exhibit “Baseball in the Far North” will run from May 1 until Nov. 1. This very interesting exhibit will showcase baseball history in Alaska from the 1800s up through present and will include a section highlighting the part the Alaska Baseball League and the Peninsula Oilers have played in the ever-evolving history of America’s game.
More information may be found at anchoragemuseum.org and for more Peninsula Oilers information go to oilersbaseball.com.
