PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An exhibit about the state’s baseball tradition is on display for a year at the South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.

“Play Ball! The National Pastime in South Dakota” will be housed in the Hogen Gallery of the museum through April 2016.

It traces the history of baseball in South Dakota from when it was a territory to the present through artifacts, images, video and hands-on activities geared for people of every age.

Museum director Jay Smith says baseball influenced community development and started community traditions statewide that are repeated every spring.

The museum and the exhibit are open during regular museum hours of 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CDT Monday through Saturday, and 1-4:30 p.m. on Sunday. There’s an admission fee for adults, but kids are free.
