The Opening Pitch


The Opening Pitch is the official kick-off for induction weekend celebrations. Guests can mingle at a small, private ticketed event with the Hall’s class of inductees, and other special guests, including past inductees, media personalities and Blue Jays executives.

Left Field Brewery, 36 Wagstaff Drive, Toronto.

$75 per ticket, which includes food and drinks and special gift.

This event is not an autograph session so there are no guarantees for autographs. Please be respectful of the inductees and other special guests.

A silent auction will take place throughout the evening. All proceeds are in support of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Hall of Famers Justin Morneau, John Olerud, Duane Ward and Jacques Doucet will be on hand along with past inductees and other special guests for an unforgettable evening.

Watch for more details as event nears.

CBHFM Statement

Despite the decision to not elect a class of Hall of Famers in 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic situation, we remain committed and excited to induct our 2020 class of Justin Morneau, Duane Ward, John Olerud and Jacques Doucet at a time when it is safe to do so in person. We continue to work to develop a plan for induction, and look forward to being able to provide details when we have more information. We hope you will all join us in celebration when the time comes!
