Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum set to open on July 4
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum is excited to announce that it will open for the season on Saturday, July 4.
“On behalf of our board of directors and our staff, I’m looking forward to welcoming visitors back to St. Marys to celebrate the rich history of baseball in this country,” said Scott Crawford, the Hall’s director of operations. “We’ve been working long hours to make sure that we have all of the precautions in place to ensure the health and safety of our visitors and staff when the museum reopens.”
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum will welcome visitors in accordance with the Province of Ontario’s Stage 2 reopening plan.
Visitors to the museum are strongly encouraged to wear face masks and while inside, they will notice floor markings that promote social distancing. Throughout each day, the number of visitors will also be monitored and restricted if necessary and the building will be cleaned extensively.
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, which was renovated in 2018 tells the stories of Baseball in Canada through interactive exhibitions, historically significant artifacts, and a one of a kind Research Centre, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays (and on holiday Mondays) until September 4.
The four ball fields on the Hall’s 32-acre site are also currently available to rent for practices of 10 people or less. It’s anticipated that more players will be permitted on the fields once the Province transitions into Phase 3 of its reopening plan.
“Like it has been for many Canadians, this has been a challenging time for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum,” said Crawford. “But we look forward to opening our doors and talking baseball again with our visitors, members and loyal supporters.”
