Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is a museum located in St. Marys, Ontario, Canada. The Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to preserving Canada’s baseball heritage which dates back to June 4, 1838, when a game which very closely resembled today’s game of baseball was played in Beachville, Ontario.
The museum was first founded in 1983 in Toronto at Exhibition Place and later moved to Ontario Place theme park. In 1994, it moved to St. Marys, Ontario, where it remains today. In 2018, the museum closed to undergo extensive renovations, and in April 2019, it reopened to the public.
