The concept of a baseball team winning a pennant or being involved in a pennant race is well known to sports fans. But what exactly is a “pennant” and when did baseball teams decide to start chasing them? What were the first pennants made from and in what sport did they make their debut?
Learn the answers to these questions and much more at the new exhibit entitled “Root the Reds Home” presented by Dinsmore. This new exhibition of Reds souvenir pennants and stadium banners highlights the origins of pennants and their evolution over the years.
