What to Expect

Big League Fun is an engaging educational exhibit experience for children and families. Emphasizing the science and math behind the game, the exhibit addresses key academic standards for school-age children and entertains baseball fans of all ages.

Here’s how you and your kiddos can play ball in this exhibit…

Test your skills! Get tips for proper pitching, throwing, fielding, hitting and base-running. Head to the bullpen and pitch into the strike zone; perfect your swing and step up to the plate; lead off, run to second or back to the bag; throw from the infield or outfield with simulated plays; and grab a glove for catching practice.

Explore the world of professional baseball. Snap your photo in front of a special backdrop, and customize your own team logo, player name and uniform using the graphic design station. In the clubhouse, check the schedule, roster, batting order and stats; explore the history of the game; and learn about the diverse backgrounds of MLB players. Pretend to be the announcer and deliver a play-by-play using real game clips and sound effects. Learn about the teams that make up Major League Baseball, vocabulary and rules, and how to calculate statistics.

There’s nothing like the ballpark experience! Tune into radio broadcasts, fill out your scorecard, and gear up with pre-game activities. Then head for the stadium arches and hear the ballpark come alive! Catch All-Star information, bloopers and more on the scoreboard, then join the crowd for the seventh-inning stretch. Answer trivia questions, calculate batting averages and solve physics-themed challenges. Recreate the ballpark experience with props, costumes, and fun math and literacy activities at ticket sales and concessions.
