La Casita Cultural Center, a program of Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences (A&S), is observing Hispanic Heritage Month with a special exhibition titled “Béisbol at the Heart of Our Latino Communities.”

Béisbol” is the theme of the “Balcón Criollo,” an annual fall program at La Casita, marking the rich history and culture of Hispanic communities throughout Central New York.

Running from Tuesday, Sept. 15, to Friday, Dec. 11, “Béisbol” celebrates and documents the significant role of baseball in Latino-American culture. The installation includes a variety of baseball memorabilia, including photos and videos of local players, coaches, and fans--from youth programs, to college and amateur leagues, to semi-professional and professional teams.
