Big League Fun is an educational exhibit that emphasizes the science and math behind the game. Explore the exciting world of Major League Baseball through engaging hands-on activities, including:

  • In the Announcer's Booth, give play-by-play based on real game clips, add sound effects and play back to hear your broadcast.
  • In the Fan Club, dress up as a team player and make your own baseball card with your favorite team logo.
  • Interview players, coaches and fans using green-screen technology.
  • Take the mound and pitch into the strike zone or be the umpire and make the call.
  • Step up to the plate where a digital screen records the swing count, displays the ball’s trajectory, and reports the outcome based on the hit.
  • Who's on First - you! Get tips from a virtual first-base coach as you lead off or run to second.
  • Grab a glove and catch a fly ball. Tips for body and glove positioning help you get the ball in the pocket.
  • Answer trivia questions, calculate batting averages and solve physics-themed challenges.
