In Episode 2 of Brew City Conversations, host John Hand talks with Milwaukee County Historical Society Curator Ben Barbera about the newest exhibit, "Back Yards to Big Leagues: Milwaukee’s Sports and Recreation History." They discuss the origination of the exhibit, the process of curating it, some stories behind the artifacts and how there’s much more to Milwaukee’s sporting history than the Bucks and Brewers.

Back Yards to Big Leagues is on display at the Milwaukee County Historical Society until April 28.
