First let me say we were not able to get in being Thanksgiving morning and we were driving through St. Marys to get home...to Chatham. But if first impressions are anything, this building strikes out. If you get into it from the highway, fine, but via the town, it is in a residential area, and on a dead end street... More

We made the trip there and there was nothing of interest. You have to be a die hard serious baseball fan to benefit from this one. One good thing is the museum is wheelchair accessible. There are baseball diamonds and walking trails on this 32 acre site. Cameras are allowed. St Mary's is home to Canada's largest outdoor swimming quarry... More

I'd say this was a 5-Star attraction. Who would have thought from the outside (it does look like big house) that inside is such interesting and informative baseball history (both Canadian and American) I was truly 'blown away' by the massive collection of memorabilia, the photos, the displays, the old/antique pitching machine ... everything! IT certainly wasn't on my "list... More

This is quite unlike Cooperstown, which feels like a shrine. It's a homely, rather cluttered house that offers a perspective on baseball that is absent from the much larger hall of fame in upstate New York, namely the Canadian view. It focuses on Canadians in the game, most notably Fergie Jenkins, as well as non-Canadians who played in Canada at... More

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is located in St. Mary's, approx 15 minutes from Stratford.  You get there to find a cute little house.  The memorabilia was crammed to the ceiling in this four room house.  The lady at the front desk said that they had stuff in the basement and stuff upstairs but couldn't show it because they...

For a true fan this is an amazing little location - they have alot of cool pieces including George Bell's MVP Ring from 1987 and Fergie Jenkins' Cy Young award. Everything from a vintage pitching machine to Babe Ruth's jersey

It's obviously no Cooperstown, but it is a nice look into Canadian baseball. If you're ever in the area, I suggest you check it out!

Unfortanitley there isn't enough room for them to show all of their artifacts. What the do have out is truly amazing. You can also buy some of the lesser memrobilia. I think the should make a second so everything can be on displey. Thanks Lucas, 13

then the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is a good way to spend a couple of hours. It certainly doesn't compare to it's US counterpoint in Cooperstown, or to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, but for the true baseball aficionado this is well worth a visit.

I have never visited the Baseball hall of Fame but people interested should know that this is not in Stratford but in St Marys which is about 20 km SW.
