Boaters, Batters, and Boxers: A Sporting Visit to Green-Wood Cemetery

Janes Walk

Led By John Semlak

Virtually walk through Green-Wood Cemetery past the graves of some of the most important figures of early American sports, including three men called the “father of baseball” and two with baseballs carved on their gravestone. Also a champion boxer, a pioneer w golfer, a horseracing giant, a ship captain who started a 132-year winning streak, and players who ended an 89-game streak.


This walk will be virtual. It's best viewed on a laptop/desktop but a phone/tablet will work.
