Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame


Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum is a museum located in St. Marys, Ontario, Canada.

History

The museum was founded in October 1983 in Toronto at Exhibition Place and later moved to Ontario Place. In 1994, it moved to St. Marys. It is dedicated to preserving Canada's baseball heritage, which dates back to June 4, 1838, when a game closely resembling today's baseball was played in Beachville, Ontario, according to an article in "Sporting Life" magazine in 1886 written by Dr. Adam Ford, formerly of St. Marys. The Hall gained some major attention when Pete Rose became eligible for earning his 4,000th hit with the Montreal Expos. However Rose has yet to be elected to the Hall.

Awards

Since opening, 78 members (49 players, 23 builders, 2 honorary, 4 honorary teams) have been inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. It includes professional ballplayers, amateurs, builders and honorary members who have helped popularize the sport in Canada.

In addition, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame also gives out the Tip O'Neill Award annually to the baseball player "judged to have excelled in individual achievement and team contribution while adhering to the highest ideals of the game of baseball."

Facilities

The facility in St. Marys also includes a baseball field designed by landscape architect Art Lierman of London, Ontario.
