The Highline Historical Society will be presenting “Coming Home: Baseball’s America” – a free program – at SeaTac City Hall starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23.

“With spring training getting underway, the Highline Historical Society and Humanities Washington are hosting a free program about baseball and its American roots at SeaTac City Hall,” reads an announcement.

William Woodward, Seattle Pacific University history professor and a member of the 2012-14 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau, will trace the closely linked history of the game and our nation.

Not only has baseball provided us with metaphors for the American way of life – “big league,” “ballpark figure,” “touching base” and more – it also has served as an engine of social change.

SeaTac City Hall is located at 4800 S 188th Street in SeaTac.

Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking.
