The students interacted with many different activities, quizzes, and videos, showing them how sports have shaped America.
One student on the field trip, Olivia Bierk said, "I liked the scrapbook that someone made that had articles about the Perryville Pirates in 1942 and 1943."
Mrs. Schremp added, “The students were excited to see, hear, and even smell the sights and sounds of the Hometown Teams exhibit. It was great to have hands-on displays that the students could interact with.”
