SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2001, 10:00 AM-5:00 PM

In conjunction with the exhibition “Gone But Not Forgotten: Celebrating Burbank, the Browns, and Barnstorming Baseball,” the Baseball Reliquary will sponsor its “Barnstorming Bus Tour,” a guided tour of historic baseball-related sites in the Los Angeles area, on Saturday, May 12, 2001. Highlights of the tour, which will begin in Burbank at 10:00 AM and conclude at approximately 5:00 PM, will include visits to:

Guest speakers on the tour will include Dick Beverage, founder and director of the Pacific Coast League Historical Society and author of books on the PCL’s Los Angeles Angels and Hollywood Stars; Joseph Dossen of the St. Louis Browns Historical Society; Mark Langill, Los Angeles Dodgers historian; and Albert Kilchesty, Baseball Reliquary archivist/historian.

The charter bus is equipped with television monitors, and a collection of entertaining and historic baseball videos will be screened while the bus is en route to the various destinations. Tour participants will receive a letterpress poster for the exhibition “Gone But Not Forgotten: Celebrating Burbank, the Browns, and Barnstorming Baseball,” produced for the Baseball Reliquary by Hatch Show Print of Nashville, Tennessee.

The tour fee is $25 per person (which includes lunch), and $15 for members of the Baseball Reliquary. As the bus seats a maximum of only 55 people, reservations are required, and full payment must be received in advance of the tour date of Saturday, May 12. You will receive confirmation of your reservation upon receipt of payment.

The bus will depart promptly at 10:00 AM from George Izay Park (formerly Olive Avenue Park) in Burbank. Tour participants may park their vehicles at no charge in the public lot adjacent to the park and just north of the Jocelyn Adult Center on West Olive Avenue and Griffith Park Drive. Return time will be approximately 5:00 PM.
