Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America April 16–May 23 Hometown Teams examines the many roles that sports play in American society. Home- town sports are more than just games–they shape our lives. They unite us and celebrate who we are as Americans. We play on ball fields and sandlots, on courts and on ice, in parks and playgrounds, even in the street. From pick-up games to organized leagues, millions of Americans of all ages play sports. And, if we're not playing sports, we're watching them. See this traveling exhibit made possible by Humanities Washington and Museums on Main Street. 32 VISIT RENTONHISTORY.ORG
