Chicago-area baseball fans will have the opportunity to view rare films from the Baseball Hall of Fame for the fifth consecutive year at Northwestern University's Block Cinema. The annual screening, which is free and open to the public, has become a popular spring event at Block Cinema for young and old alike.
Block Cinema will screen the nearly 90 minutes of rare baseball footage at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 11, in the James B. Pick and Rosalyn M. Laudati Auditorium of the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, 40 Arts Circle Drive, on Northwestern's Evanston campus.
The screening will feature some of the sport's greatest players, including Willie Mays, Ted Williams, Gil Hodges, Phil Rizzuto, Babe Ruth and Major League pitcher, manager and team owner Clark Griffith.
