COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Memorabilia from the Occupy Wall Street movement is occupying an exhibit at the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
The New York Times reports (http://nyti.ms/QeBklf ) that items used by a theater group linked to the Wall Street protests are on display at the Cooperstown museum as part of an exhibit called "Today's Game."
The items - a "Tax Dodgers" jersey and a hat with a 1 percent logo - were donated by a satirical street theater group tied to Occupy Wall Street. In April, members of the group donned the jerseys and hats during street protests in Manhattan. The jerseys resemble those worn by the old Brooklyn Dodgeers.
The museum's senior curator says the group's use of baseball imagery fits in with the museum's other artifacts linked to politics and other issues.
