In 2016, Hometown Teams will be making its debut in the state in host cities Anniston, Brewton, Enterprise, Gadsden, Haleyville and Livingston.
“Given the prominence of sports in Alabama, we are extremely excited to be hosting this tour,” Bryant said. “It will enable local communities to share their own sports history alongside the national story from the Smithsonian.”
“Few aspects of American culture so colorfully and passionately celebrate the American experience as sports,” said Bob Santelli, curator for Hometown Teams.
“It promises to be a popular exhibit, and we thank all involved for giving Alabama and these host cities the opportunity to see it and be a part of this historic event across our state,” Bryant said.
Hometown Teams will tour Feb. 27, 2016—Dec. 11, 2016.
