4 ENTERTAINMENT FEBRUARY 7-13, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE LIVING EDITION Museum of Work & Culture presents baseball talk Sunday WOONSOCKET – As part of its Valley Talks series, the Museum of Work & Culture, 42 South Main St., will pres- ent "The Outward and Visible Expression: A Brief History of Baseball in the 19th Century" with baseball enthusiast Jon Henson on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 1:30 p.m. Henson will survey the rise of the beloved game in the 1800s, from its early forms of "invigorating exercise" through its power to create important social bonds amid the tensions of the age, its entrance on the collegiate scene, and its push toward professionalism. The talk, presented as part of the Rhode Island Historical Society's 2019 programming theme Rah-Rah Rhody, a celebration of sports in the Ocean State, will explore the evolution of the rules of the game and highlight many of the personalities and anec- dotes that tell the colorful his- tory of the national pastime. Seating is limited to 75 and is first-come, first-served. Other Valley Talks will include: • Feb. 24: Rhode Island Reds Heritage Society President Buster Clegg screens "When the Reds Ruled the Roost," a brief documentary on the state's onetime profes- sional hockey team. • March 10: Writer and historical re-enactor Paul Bourget on why the battles fought in 1864 were pivotal to the outcome of the American Civil War.
