Baseball
Wiese Field donated by Elizabeth Bracken Wiese and J. Frederic Wiese Jr.

  • Batter up for the pitch!
    Step up from the dugout, hit a fly ball, then round the bases...faster than you can spell “home run.”

The outdoor experiences are closed for the season. They will reopen in 2021!

COVID-19 Safety Exhibit Updates:
To facilitate social distancing, the capacity of the outdoor portion of the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® has been reduced, as has the capacity of each sports experience within it. Almost all experiences are open. Touchable elements are sanitized by staff frequently, and sanitizing wipes are provided for your use to sanitize sports equipment before and after use. Please be aware of the following changes and comply with these guidelines for your health and safety:
  • Visitors should only play and share equipment with their own household group (for example, do not share footballs or tennis balls).
  • Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience® Coaches will show proper use of sporting equipment but will not hand equipment to visitors.
  • Visitors should wipe down all provided equipment before and after use except for Racing and Golf equipment, which will be sanitized by staff.

All Children's Museum exhibits will have capacity limits. Museum staff will monitor occupancy and if capacity is reached, staff will admit visitors to the exhibit when others leave.

The Wiese Field Baseball Experience will be closed for 30 minute cleaning at 11:30 a.m. daily. Cleaning times are subject to change.

Hit a home run at the baseball diamond! In this experience, families can learn about America’s pastime and work on their fastball. 

  • Hang out in the dugout before it’s your turn to bat 
  • Learn about the Indianapolis Clowns baseball team
  • Use a tee (or not) to practice hitting the ball
  • Perfect your own pitch by throwing into a pitching tutor 
  • Pretend you're up to bat at the Indianapolis Indians photo-op

Riley Health PROtip: Stress affects us all—kids and grown-ups! It’s important to make family time for fun and relaxing outdoor activities like baseball. 

Outdoor areas are weather dependent. 

All equipment provided by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
