The Peoria City Hall Art Gallery is the temporary home to more than 100 years of baseball memories in an exhibit sponsored by West Valley Art Museum.

Open through March 27, the show is free to the public. On view are Sports Illustrated magazine covers autographed by 30 players in the Baseball Hall of Fame as well as baseballs signed by Willie Mays and other famous players.

Also included are numerous player jackets from long-gone teams, a Roberto Clemente display with San Juan “farm team” items, women’s softball in the Chicago area and the famous Sun City Saints.

The show includes an extensive array of baseball collectibles and historic artifacts rarely seen on public display, according to museum officials.

The exhibit will not be elsewhere and is on view only this spring, officials said.

The Peoria City Hall Art Gallery is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. with special tour requests at other times by appointment only.

For additional information, go to or call 623-972-0635.

Should Arizona lower the age when teens can obtain driving permits?

Arizona House Bill 2080 would allow teenagers as young as 15 to obtain a driving permit, only letting them drive with a licensed operator who is 21 years or older. The current driving permit age limit is 15 years, 6 months. Is this change a good idea?
