Listed among the most pop­u­lar sports in North Amer­ica, Canada’s base­ball has a rich his­tory. The “Canada Games” which are held in Sher­brooke this sum­mer of­fered a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the his­tory of this sport, partly to in­form but also for those who de­light in it. For most part, it will be ded­i­cated to the cen­ten­nial his­tory of base­ball in Coat­i­cook as well as a trib­ute to the lo­cal pi­o­neers of the sport. This hon­our will be sup­ported by the pub­li­ca­tion of the book ti­tled “Coup sûr au Stade Julien-Morin” by jour­nal­ist Chris­tian Caron. This book is over­flow­ing with re­veal­ing in­for­ma­tion and rem­i­nis­cent pho­to­graphs of yes­ter­year’s lo­cal base­ball.

This ex­hi­bi­tion will in­clude doc­u­ments from ar­chives, pho­to­graphs, uni­forms, base­ball bats, base- balls, gloves etc. some of which be­longed to celebri­ties. For ex­am­ple, a base­ball bat be­long­ing to Jackie Robin­son and an­other used by Gary Carter. You may also see au­to­graphed base­balls by Claude Ray­mond, Guy Lafleur, Vladimir Guer­rero and more.
