About 40 artists from across the country were invited to create their own interpretations of the sport; the results, on display through April 28, include paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures.

Kresvky points to some exhibit highlights, including Carl Hugo Beetz’s historical 1938 canvas of a White Sox exhibition game and printmaker Stacy Carter’s images of the San Francisco Seals vs. the Oakland Oaks.

There are plenty of famous players, too: Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, Ted Williams and Roberto Clemente also are represented.
