Learn More About Our Education Programs

 “Our recent “virtual” field trip to the Yogi Berra Museum including a Zoom tour of the Negro Leagues Baseball Exhibit. Typically, this part of American history and culture is rarely studied or talked about.  The program encouraged us to be curious about race in sports and lead to honest conversations. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this program for your students! Jenny at the museum will design a program that works for you and your school.”
Andrea Llauget, West Essex High School

Free, multimedia lesson plans explore important topics of Race, Immigration, Gender & Financial Literacy through the lens of baseball. Virtual learning has never been more accessible or fun. 

Exciting readings, off-screen activities, thought-provoking questions and multimedia tools create an engaging, accessible learning experience for middle and high school students. And our plans meet NJ State and Common Core National Standards, so they're the perfect supplement to classroom curriculum.
