Pasadena Central Library
285 East Walnut Street, Pasadena, California

                 In conjunction with the 2008 Induction Day ceremony of the Shrine of the Eternals, the Baseball Reliquary presents The Tenth Inning, a survey featuring highlights of many Reliquary exhibitions held over the last ten years (1999-2008) at libraries, galleries, and community centers throughout Southern California. Many artifacts, artworks, photographs, and documents spanning the history of baseball are on display, including such perennial favorites as Bill Veeck’s wooden leg and a clump of dirt dug up from the ground in 1853 at Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey, long considered the birthplace of modern baseball.
                Some of the past Reliquary exhibitions that are highlighted in The Tenth Inning include “Shrine to Louis Sockalexis,” “Baseball’s Time Machine: Photography at the Field of Dreams,” “Culinary Baseball: Dishing Up the National Pastime,” “Women in Baseball: There’s No Place Like Home (Plate),” “Life After Baseball: From Espionage to Evangelism,” “Mexican-American Baseball in Los Angeles: From the Barrios to the Big Leagues,” and others.  
                Pasadena Central Library hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM; Friday and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM; and Sunday from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
