The large Hungarian flag was unfurled in the outfield at Classic Park, as Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark was officially opened Saturday evening, June 25th. Several Hungarian organizations in Northeast Ohio helped set the "magyar" theme of this evening. Over the years, this event has proven to be a popular celebration of Hungarian culture mixed with the great American pastime, baseball. The Hungarian Museum once again served the community by manning a popular face painting table. Children lined up at the table up into the 9th inning, as Magdalene Meszaros and Tini Halacsy painted Hungarian folk motifs and ancient Magyar letters (rovás írás) on faces, arms and hands of children attending the game with their parents. There's nothing like a "visual" imprint of our rich Hungarian culture, and the Museum gratefully acknowledges the hard work of these two dedicated face painters! Thank you to the Captain's Baseball Team for the opportunity to showcase our culture at this popular venue and helping us celebrate Charles Nagy, a great pitcher for the Cleveland Indians!Read more...
