Unforgettable drama unfolds on our neighborhood fields and courts. We share stories of underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries, and gut-wrenching defeats. We hear tales of human spirit, physical skill, and the memorable games that changed an entire community. Hometown Teams explores the deep roots of sports in American culture, and shows how we engage in and watch sports to have fun, build up our communities, and support each other.

Sports in our hometowns reflect the trials and triumphs of our American experience and our multicultural national character. Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, snowboarding, horseback riding, mountain biking - whatever sports we play or support, these activities bring out what's best in us. Sports highlight essential American traits: competitiveness, sportsmanship, fair play, and the desire to win.

Hometown Teams is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

  • Seven sections with free-standing kiosks
  • Resource List for Adults, Teens, and Children

  • Docent Handbook
  • Programming Ideas
