The rich sporting heritage of the Pacific Northwest served as inspiration for Steelheads Alley. The area includes art honoring a number of athletes who broke through barriers throughout the history of our region, as well as mementos from the 1946 Seattle Steelheads Negro League baseball club. One such mural was made by Seattle artist Damon Brown of Creative Lou. Players from the Steelheads and other local Pacific Northwest baseball and softball clubs, including the Seattle Owls, Mikado Baseball Club, Seattle Pilots, and more, may be seen on the beautiful baseball field mural!

A big thank-you to the Black Heritage Society of Washington State, MOHAI, and David Eskenazi for contributing historical images and artifacts to the Steelheads Alley Memorabilia Wall. We also thank the Northwest African American Museum for the long-term loan of the Negro League jerseys.
