Montclair, New Jersey

The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, located on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ, is an engaging setting that reflects the good nature, humour, and humility of famed New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra. TRITECH Communications collaborated with exhibit designer Responsive Spaces to create the museum’s extremely popular “PITCH!” immersive experience. It allows visitors to face off with an animated batter and catcher and track the ball’s velocity and accuracy. Then the umpire responds with a “strike” or “ball” call, along with a fitting “Yogi-ism,” such as “it ain’t over till it’s over.” The team was faced with a multitude of challenges. What type of ball would provide the most accurate experience? What type of glass would best protect the video displays? The final product is a fun, safe, and portable exhibit.
