Play Ball! Sports in Scott County

Sports and history are similar, especially in how people interact with them. They both begin with facts and numbers but cannot be fully understood without greater stories. It is easiest to understand the sports and history that are closest to us in experience and location, thus the popularity of hometown stories. Most athletes begin their sports careers playing locally at the high school level. Of those privileged to represent their hometown ball club, only a select few move on to the bright lights of professional sports. Usually sports history focuses on professional sports. This exhibit recognizes that all history is local and that Scott County has stories that can match with any major league.
