Chasing Dreams (Catalog)
Title: Chasing Dreams
Author: Josh Perelman
Abstract: Nothing matches the energy of Opening Day: a celebration of spring time, renewed dreams, and of national heroes past, present, and future. From the game’s earliest days in the nineteenth century through today, baseball has served as a pathway for minority groups to learn and understand American values.
As a complement to the groundbreaking exhibition Chasing Dreams: Baseball and Becoming American, the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) has published a 256-page hardbound volume of the same name featuring over 40 evocative, compelling, and touching essays by a notable array of authors, sportswriters, former players, and commentators, as well as 143 stunning photographs chronicling the history of the game.
