Baseball Heritage Museum at League Park

The mission of the Baseball Heritage Museum is to preserve and present the history of diversity in baseball by entertaining, educating, and enlightening the visiting public about the multicultural heritage of baseball and the values it represents.

They were ambitious people, proud of the nicknames like Satch, Double Duty, Fireball and Big Papa. For too many years their stories have not been known. At the Baseball Heritage Museum, the public is able to experience their stories, photographs, letters, programs, uniforms and other game-used treasured memorabilia, which detail the important contributions from the Latin and Caribbean leagues, the Industrial and Barnstormer leagues and the Negro and Women’s leagues that helped shape the history of the great American pastime.

The Baseball Heritage Museum is located at League Park, the original home of Cleveland baseball, in the center of the historic Hough neighborhood of Cleveland. The Museum is dedicated to preserving the artifacts and stories of baseball’s past with a special focus on diversity in the sport.

The Museum uses the stories of challenge and triumph intrinsic in the stories of the Negro Leagues and other underserved demographics in the sport to take its presence to an additional level. General programming, youth educational offerings, community outreach and other initiatives are driven by the rich repository of life lessons in these stories. The Museum is also a driver of Cleveland’s sense of place, by continuously working to become a center of neighborhood life and a destination location for baseball and history lovers from across the city and across the country.
