Rare Indiana baseball items going on display

– A Hoosier baseball aficionado will allow the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center to display some rare memorabilia.

The collection of Indianapolis attorney Scott Tarter explores Indiana’s contributions to America’s national pastime. The History Center says Indiana was the site of the first-ever major league baseball game and has been home to five major league teams, including the Indianapolis Hoosiers, who won the 1914 Federal League pennant.

Other material explores the history of the Fort Wayne Kekiongas and the Indianapolis Blues. Also on display are a limited-edition reproduction of the first recorded baseball card dating from 1869 and original 19th-century and early 20th-century baseball cards, photographs and illustrations.

The exhibition will be on display Sept. 9 through Nov. 15 at the History Center in downtown Indianapolis.
