Last month I stopped in Sacramento to visit the California Museum's exhibit, Professional Baseball in California. While the exhibit was fairly modest in size, the quality of the items was top notch. The old Pacific Coast League was featured, as was the current major league teams. It also focused on players who were from California, so players like Joe DiMaggio (and his brothers) and Ted Willams were represented. I was surprised there was barely a mention of Mike Trout.
Here's a few photos I shot:
