Hall of Fame Galleries

Museum exhibits draw from a collection of 40,000 lovingly preserved artifacts and more than 3 million library items to bring your stories to life.

There is plenty for the hard-core fan to absorb: plaques, stats, equipment donned by the game’s greatest players, as well as important figures that many have now forgotten. There are uniforms worn on ancient fields and pieces of ballparks long faded from communities across the country.
