It’s back. Just in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Detroit Tigers’ 1984 World Series championship, the DIA will once again look at baseball culture through the lens of an art history museum. This year’s exhibition explores the evolution of America’s pastime with a special focus on two championship teams, the 1887 Detroit Wolverines, Detroit’s first professional baseball and championship team, and the 1984 Detroit Tigers. Highlights include Ty Cobb memorabilia; the history of baseball cards, including the first card of an African-American player, Jackie Robinson; handwritten scorecards kept by announcer Ernie Harwell; and baseball-themed works of art from the DIA’s collection. 313-833-7900
