Highline Historical Society presents “Coming Home: Baseball’s America”

With spring training getting underway, the Highline Historical Society and Humanities Washington are hosting a free program about baseball and its American roots at SeaTac City Hall on Sunday, February 23. William Woodward, Seattle Pacific University history professor and a member of the 2012-14 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau, will trace the closely linked history of the game and our nation. Not only has baseball provided us with metaphors for the American way of life – “big league,” “ballpark figure,” “touching base” and more – it also has served as an engine of social change. Woodward will be speaking at 2 PM on Sunday, February 23. SeaTac City Hall is located at 4800 S 188th Street in SeaTac. Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking.
