AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles. Take Me Out To The Ball Game: Popular Music And The National Pastime will offer insight and historical reference for the history of music in baseball. The exhibit takes you on a journey starting before the 20th century when interest in baseball-themed music was fostered through the sales of sheet music, then explains the rise of baseball songs becoming a part of a new era of American music in the early 1900s, to current day popular music being a central part of players preparing to take the field and excite the fans.
The exhibit will run through baseball season until fall 2019. The GRAMMY Museum is located at 800 W Olympic Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90015. For more information, visit https://www.grammymuseum.org/exhibits/current-exhibits/take-me-out-to-the-ball-game
