A new exhibit at the Behringer-Crawford Museum will highlight sports memorabilia belonging to some of the 1,400 Northern Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame inductees.
Among the items: a 1950s-era baseball jersey, sewn and worn by Pat Scott, a Covington native whose pitching career was memorialized in the 1992 film A League of Their Own. Scott died in 2016 at 87.
The Northern Kentucky Sports Legends exhibit opens Sunday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m., with free admission that day until 12:30 p.m.
