Baseball: The All-American Game, an exhibition of pieces owned by Los Angeles memorabilia collector Gary Cypres, opens Sunday at the Craft and Folk Art Museum on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile district. The exhibit "explores the influence of baseball on American folk art made between the late-1800s to present day. For the first time in Los Angeles, the public will have access to the largest exhibition of baseball-related traditional folk art since the American Folk Art Museum's historic "Perfect Game: America Looks at Baseball: in 2003, says CAFAM.

There's a public opening reception at the museum tonight from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
