Six-feet under sluggers

Take me out to the graveyard! Green-Wood Cemetery is celebrating the start of the baseball season with an historical tour of the permanent dugouts where several of the game’s great players and pioneers are buried. Residents include Excelsiors star James Creighton, big hitter Charlie Smith, and Dodgers owner Charles Ebbets.

Sacred art

This is not your average Sunday church service. On March 28 and 30, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Williamsburg will play host to a series of immersive, religion-inspired performances throughout the building from a collective of local artists. The line-up sounds both bizarre and fascinating, with works including “an interactive ritual cleansing” and “a high-stakes game of scrabble.”

7 pm and 9 pm at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church [334 S Fifth St. between Rodney and Keep streets, www.oneofuswchapel.com]. $15–$20.

Music masters

This is one for the know-it-all music nerds (you know who you are). Long-running trivia contest the Big Quiz Thing is heading to Littlefield to host a countdown of its top 40 music trivia questions from past shows.

All that jazz
