Within the traveling exhibit, guests can throw pitches in the bullpen, work on their swings, run the bases and practice catching. Visitors also have the opportunities to deliver play-by-play calls like MLB announcers, learn baseball trivia and create their own virtual baseball cards.

“Baseball gives our children an opportunity to have fun and be active, but it also proves the power of learning through play by building confidence, developing problem solving skills and encouraging teamwork,” Patricia D. Wellenbach, president and CEO of Please Touch Museum, said in a release.
