The Naval War College will host a baseball game on Friday, September 29th at historic Cardines Field in downtown Newport. The program is designed as a fun event with educational programming to mark the centennial of American involvement in World War I, and is being organized in close collaboration with Naval History and Heritage Command, the Congressional World War Centenary Commission, and the City of Newport. The Army-Navy baseball game will be played in period-accurate uniforms, and is a precursor to the opening of a new World War I exhibit at the Naval War College Museum this December. The gates to Cardines Field will open at 4:30 p.m. and all are welcome to attend this free event.
