75th Anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum
August 2, 2014 The Clark Sports Center, Cooperstown, NY
Moonalice poster by Alexandra Fischer
According to Moonalice legend, in our tribe Cooperstown IS baseball. We don’t mind that the story of baseball’s founding is a myth. Our whole tribe is a myth. Legend is our business, just as it is the business of Cooperstown and National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. To that end, I present Exhibit A. Tonight’s poster by Alexandra Fischer depicts another piece of legend, Clark Chadwick Doubleday Moonalice, a journeyman infielder whose fear of flame throwing pitcher Christy Mathewson caused him to invent a uniform made of asbestos. Unfortunately, Clark’s bat was made of wood and combusted on Mathewson’s first pitch.
Note: Due to circumstances beyond the control of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the planned mega-event for the Hall’s 75th Anniversary was cancelled on two weeks’ notice. The village of Cooperstown organized an alternative event in Lakeside Park: Moonalice + Field of Dreams!
