To kick off the 2019 Major League Baseball season we welcome baseball historian Tom Gilbert, along with Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman, for a tour of Green-Wood’s ball-playing pioneers. On this trolley tour you’ll visit the monuments and gravesites of Henry Chadwick, the “Father of Baseball,” who invented the game’s scoring system; James Creighton, baseball’s first national star; Charles Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers; and many others who played a role in making baseball America’s national pastime.
