Description

The Chicago Baseball Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that will collect, preserve, document, research, and interpret artifacts and events that are associated with the legacy, evolution and contemporary life of Chicago baseball.

Our goal is to compliment the various baseball museums and institutions around the country, including Cooperstown, the Negro League Baseball Museum, and the virtual All-American Girls Professional Baseball League museum. We feel our unique Chicago perspective will only serve to compliment the landscape of baseball in America.

 

Our dream for the Chicago Baseball Museum is to emulate the scope and integrity of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library in Springfield, IL. Complete with its 21st century high-tech imagery, holograms, and virtual civil war simulations, it’s an experience no visitor can soon forget. What an incredible experience it would be to imitate the technology of the Lincoln Museum in the context of baseball in America

allowing visitors to bat against Red Faber or Mordecai Brown, pitch to Ernie Banks or Luke Appling, or listen to Charles Comiskey’s hologram tell stories of baseball in America in the early 1900s.
