Pirates Kids Day; “Race” Continues at Carnegie Museum (CPs Sun., 9/14/14)

1) Our beloved Buccos take the diamond again today against the Chicago Cubs. It’s also Kids Day, with a Family Fun Zone outside the ball yard beforehand, and all fans 14 and under receiving Gerrit Cole Fathead Jr. wall decals and a chance to run the bases after the game. First pitch at 1:35 p.m. 115 Federal St., North Shore.

2) Dig beneath the surface to explore the ongoing issue of race in America with RACE: Are We So Different? at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. The exhibition delves into race through stories from multiple points of view including biological, cultural, and historical. This enlightening look goes to the foundations of how we perceive each other, exploring questions about what differences really consist of and how much they matter. Embrace your roots and beauty from the inside out with this moving exhibit. Sundays noon – 5 p.m.. Runs through Oct. 27. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.

3) Isn’t country music great! Earl Dibbles, Jr., the alter-ego of country music recording artist Granger Smith, has a saying: “The higher the truck, the closer to God.” Smith, a Texas A&M grad, has been on the country scene for over ten years now and has performed at the White House and for our troops overseas. His latest album Dirt Road Driveway debuted at number one on the iTunes Country Chart, propelling him from a highly successful regional (Texas) talent onto the national scene. The album includes the fun party song “We Do it In a Field.” Opening is Mark Leach. Doors open at 6 p.m. Stage AE, 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore.
