Major League Baseball in the City of Chicago is divided geographically by only ten miles, but the distance between their fan bases is far greater. In its new summer exhibit, EHM hits it out of the park highlighting the longtime rivalry between the fans of these two storied teams. This cultural history exposé covers all the bases of the crosstown rivalry to examine concepts of loyalty and fandom through videos of each team’s colorful supporters; interviews with former players, sports journalists and broadcasters; and fan souvenirs and ephemera. Unlike the actual game of baseball, there are no rain-outs with this exhibit, but catch it while you can!
