Founder of the Hall of Fame Bruce Prentice passes away

Current Chair Jeremy Diamond, Bruce Prentice, past Chair Adam Stephens

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Bruce Prentice, the Founder and first president of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, a position he held for a decade. Bruce guided the Hall through its early years when we called Exhibition Place and then Ontario Place our home and under his leadership, our first induction ceremony was held in 1983 when John Ducey, James “Tip” O’Neill, Phil Marchildon, George Selkirk, Lester B. Pearson, Frank Shaughnessy were honoured.

We will never forget Bruce’s enthusiasm, creativity and strong governance that helped make the CBHFM what it is today. We are thinking of his wife Audrey, and their children are Brad, Laura, Graham and David during this time and offer our condolences.
