Oncoming Exhibition, "Home Run !"
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 through Sunday, November 25, 2012
At the Exhibition Hall of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
Home runs provide baseball with much of its excitement and drama and fans have long been attracted by home run hitters.
On display in the coming exhibition will be some 40 bats used by leading home run hitters headed by Sadaharu Oh, Katsuya Nomura, Hiromitsu Kadota, Hideki Matsui, and Takeya Nakamura. Also to be on display are a photo panel of players in the top 10 in lifetime home runs, and a NPB promotion film (running every 5 minutes) of home run hitters.
