NASA teams up with Hall of Fame to help students play baseball game on Mars

NASA is teaming up with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to host an Imagine Mars workshop on September 19th and 20th in Cooperstown, New York. Using information they learn about the Martian environment and facts they glean about baseball, area middle school students will work together to devise a way baseball can be played on Mars, complete with uniforms, stadium concepts, concessions and rules of the game. Registration is required and space is limited.
