Baseball Reminiscence Program
Based on a successful program in St. Louis, the Baseball Reminiscence Program brings baseball lovers with early stage dementia together to connect on a shared passion for the game. Participants will listen to recordings of old games, swap memories, and talk about the game with fellow participants and volunteers from the Society of American Baseball Research. The program will wrap up with a trip to see the Round Rock Express take on Memphis Red Birds.
