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.

Thursday, June 16, 2022

Left Field Brewery, 36 Wagstaff Drive, Toronto.


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 Jeff Francis, Justin Morneau, Duane Ward and Jacques Doucet will be on hand along with past inductees Paul Quantrill,  Gord Ash and Howard Starkman and other special guests for an unforgettable evening.

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame was planning to honour John Olerud as an 2020 inductee at this year’s ceremony in St Marys. However, unfortunately, John is unable to attend. We look forward to hosting and celebrating with John and his family in 2023.” Jeremy Diamond, Chair Board of Directors
