• CCBR Display at Downtown London Library

    The Downtown branch of the London Public Library¬†is hosting a display of selected items from the Centre’s library. The display is located outside the London Room, the London Library’s research facility, on the 3rd floor. It¬†provides a glimpse into the materials available in the Centre’s research library. Included are a handful of 19th-century Guides, one of the earliest histories of the game from 1902, and a set of the first baseball tobacco cards from 1887. Selected books highlight aspects of Canada’s baseball past as well, from histories of now-defunct leagues to the story of baseball in Toronto before the Blue Jays. The display will be open to the public throughout the month of October, leading up to the Centre’s annual Canadian Baseball History Conference in early November.
