The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is located in St. Marys, Ontario. The Hall of Fame and Museum commemorates great players, teams, and accomplishments of baseball in Canada. The Museum was founded in November 1982 in Toronto at Exhibition Place and later moved to Ontario Place theme park. In August 1994, it was awarded to St. Marys, Ontario and in June 1998 the doors officially opened in St. Marys. 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; and even further back to the late 1700’s when baseball was mentioned in New Brunswick. The CBHFM annually hosts 700+ kids’ events on site and have developed to include baseball fields, museum space and trails. The Hall of Fame hosts an annual Induction Ceremony to recognize those who have contributed to the development of Canadian baseball.
