One of Maryland Humanities Council’s major goals for Hometown Teams was to strengthen communities through local partnerships. The oral histories, the Hot Sox Documentary Quilt, the Field Guide to Galesville, and most importantly the relationships that were built between local students and hometown heroes like the remaining Galesville Hot Sox players are byproducts of this successful partnership. The Galesville Community Center’s work to explore, preserve, and share local history has energized its public and solidified its place as a community driver.

This program won a 2015 Schwartz Prize.
