The history in this museum is absolutely amazing. The number of players and the different leagues that are represented is beyond compare. Give yourself at the very least two hours to go through at a rapid pace, more time allowed would be great. The only draw back, the museum is only open on game days and closes at the end... More

This is a great free museum located inside of Tropicana Field where the Tampa Bay Rays play. The memorabilia at the museum rivals what you see at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. Well worth the visit.

For a big baseball fan this was an unexpected delight. A trip down memory lane. All the big hitters are highlighted.

Housed inside Tropicana Field, this museum (which really should be at Fenway) has a lot of memorabilia from the best hitters of all time as decided by Ted Williams. Many NYY players (which we liked) and a tribute to the Negro and Peach Leagues. If you're a baseball fan, you'll enjoy it!

This place is shrine to hitting and Ted Williams. I was late getting to the game so I didn't get much time in here. There's tons of stuff about Ted here. There's a whole wall for Ted. There's stuff on a lot of other players as well.

It's open from 2 hours before game time through the 6th inning, and has display with memorabilita of 20 hitters chosen by Ted Williams, and others subsequently inducted into their Hall of Fame. There's also a case highlighting Josh Gibson and the... More

A walk through the museum is a walk through baseball history. Hitters from all eras are honored, with a special niche for those who played in the Negro Leagues when baseball was segregated. If you go to a Rays game, be sure to go early enough to walk through this free museum.

I walked thru here when I went to my first Rays game, and I found this to be very neat and interesting for someone who really does not follow the game.
