Museum Masterclass

The History of Baseball in Toronto with Adam Bunch

NOTICE: This event has passed.

Baseball was being played in Toronto more than a century before the Blue Jays were born.

In this online course, we’ll explore the game’s evolution in our city — from the days when it was a working class sport played by “undesirables” to Joe Carter jumping for joy in front of 50,000 screaming fans.

Along the way, we’ll meet everyone from con artists and kidnappers to eccentric millionaires and feminist icons — the people who’ve made Toronto baseball what it is… and helped transform our city in the process.

Join us weekly on Tuesdays for this 4-week masterclass, starting February 20th.


Class 01: Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 7pm – 8pm
