The Smithsonian’s “Hometown Teams” exhibit captures the stories that unfold on neighborhood fields and courts: the underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries and gut-wrenching defeats. For more than 100 years, sports have reflected the trials and triumphs of the American experience and helped shape the national character. Whether professional, on the collegiate or scholastic level, or played by kids on the local playground, sports are everywhere in America. The local curated displays include a high school jersey worn by NFL player Gary Brown, high school jersey worn by NBA’s Alize Johnson; Phoenix Mercury jersey on loan from Kelly Mazzante; gold medals and uniforms worn by Pennsylvanian Special Olympians; and a painting of the winner of the first Heisman Memorial Trophy who graduated from Williamsport High School, among others. Exhibition is co-hosted by Madigan Library and World of Little League Museum and Official Store. More information also may be found at https://www.pct.edu/hometownteams.
