The Chicago Cubs’ historic World Series Championship this year demonstrates the magic that lies within the game of baseball. I am not referring to Jason Heyward’s motivating speech during the rain delay in Game 7 or the improbable home run by 39-year old David “Grampa” Ross. Both of those events will be talked about for many years, but the magic I am referring to lies within the hearts of the fans. There were many videos of fans in their 80’s and 90’s, crying with joy while surrounded by their families. There were fans in the streets of Chicago carrying photos of family members who were no longer alive to see history made. One fan drove hundreds of miles to watch Game 7 at his father’s grave, because prior to his father’s death in 1980, he and his father had made a pact that when the Chicago Cubs finally played in a World Series, they would experience it together. The number of emotional stories told like this are endless.
At the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, we strive to preserve the memories and stories that have made baseball just as magical here in our country. It is our hope that when people visit the Museum in St. Marys, walk among our four ballfields, and attend our annual Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies, it will incite attendees to reflect on their own memories of the game of baseball and the loved ones that have shared those special moments with them. To accomplish this goal, we need continued support from our loyal members and partners.
