As a baseball historian and a major collector of sports memorabilia I was one of the original people proposing a Baseball Hall of Fame in Canada in the 1970s ... It took until 1983 to officially open up with floating displays in various locations around Toronto before it settled in this tremendous middle-sized historical rural town in Western Ontario, about...

This spot looks small (a few rooms in a nice older house) but is crammed with fascinating baseball tidbits everywhere you look. Babe Ruth's bat, Cito Gaston's World Series rings, a ball signed by the Robinson-era Montreal Royals, the home plate from the Jays' World Series win, signed stuff from Votto, Lawrie and every other Canadian star you can think...

This little museum is fantastic. Although they are limited for space due to the size of the building they have packed an amazing amount of baseball memorabilia into this museum. You really need to be prepared to spend a couple of hours going through it in order to grasp the value of this place. The amount of work that has... More

Despite what might be your first impression of the CBHOF building, I sincerely urge anyone who is any kind of a baseball fan to look past the modest outward appearance and actually step inside to experience some of the best baseball memorabilia accumulated under one roof. Zack, the proprietor, was very knowledgeable and personable, answering any questions we had. There... More

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
