Do you have a little baseball fan in your house who's curious about the history of the game? Now you can catch a great exhibit about Boston's tradition of amateur and semi-professional baseball that features important players of color. "The Color of Baseball" is on view at the Museum of African American History through the fall, and highlights players from the early 19th and 20th century. On display are a number of treasures, including the recently conserved uniform of Will "Cannonball" Jackman (who's often called "the best baseball player you never heard of), as well as newspaper articles, baseball cards, equipment and photos, and a base signed by Jackie Robinson. Daily, except Sundays, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Under 12 and members, free; ages 13-17, $3; adults, $5; ages 62+ $3. Museum of African American History, 46 Joy St., Boston. www.afroammuseum.org
