The Museums of Tusculum College will be featured as part of “History Night at the Greeneville Astros” on Saturday, July 19, during its game with the Danville Braves.
The evening will feature the two museums on the Tusculum campus, the Doak House Museum and the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library, and several other area museums and historic groups on the concourse at Pioneer Park, also located at the college.
In addition, the Tennessee Association of Vintage Baseball will promote living history by bringing the 19th century to life through baseball events that use the rules, equipment, costumes and culture of the 1860s.
The ball game will begin at 6 p.m. The evening will also feature a concert by Nikki Moulder at 4:30 p.m., and fans arriving early will receive a free Astros jersey of former Greeneville Astros MVP and MLB All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve as they enter the gates.
