There are some great baseball museums out there. Some I have seen, and others I haven’t, yet.
Here are a few that I haven’t seen yet and really want to.
3. Alabama Sports Museum/Rickwood Field, Birmingham, AL
Rickwood Field is the oldest surviving professional baseball park having been built in 1910. Add in the Alabama Sports Museum and you have quite a combination.
2. Negro Leagues Museum, Kansas City, MO
This is one of the best museums in the country. Sadly I have not been able to get to Kansas City on anything other than a business trip in the past.
1. Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, NY
That’s right. I haven’t been to the granddaddy of them all. This is definitely a trip that needs to happen soon.
There are a lot of good ones out there including Ted Williams Museum, St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame, Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards.
The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano. It is dedicated to saving lives by searching for a cure for cancer and by creating an awareness of the importance of the war on cancer. You can help the cause by donating now.
