It’s hard to believe the 2018 baseball season will be one of the biggest softball seasons of the year, but that’s exactly what it’s going to be.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has announced that it will be hosting a softball-specific “season of softball” at its Museum of American History, beginning with a special exhibition of equipment that was donated to the museum by the San Francisco Giants.
The Giants donated the equipment, which includes an equipment truck, softball pitch stand, field and a soft ball rack, according to the Associated Press.
The equipment was originally purchased by the Hall of Science and Technology of San Francisco in 1971 and was made available to the San Diego Padres for a “special display of equipment,” according to a press release from the museum.
The museum has since used the equipment to display baseballs at events, including the annual World Series.
The San Francisco-based Giants are among the many baseball teams that donated their equipment to the Museum of America.
The organization’s annual exhibition, which will be held Sept. 10-16, is dedicated to the contributions of the American baseball community.
It includes exhibits, games, competitions and programs that highlight the contributions made by baseball players to their community.
More to come.
