This was truly a neat stop. I had no expectations other than it had something to do with baseball. Boy was I surprised! It is inside of an old building part of the second Indian's stadium, built in the early 1900s. And, there is a baseball field on premises that is in the same spot as the original field - which is in use. The museum itself is free to enter (with a suggested donation), with a lot of cool artifacts such as a home run ball hit there by Babe Ruth. It is worth the visit if you are a baseball fan for sure.

We visited in May 2019. Unfortunately, no one showed up to open the museum. Be sure to go to the Visitor Center building. There are some steps inside that went from the original clubhouse to the dugout. No access to a dugout, just the steps to the original tunnel entrance. Pretty cool!

Think you know your baseball history? Think you know your Cleveland baseball history? If the answer to either question is "Yes".... well, you need to stop here first! Not a large museum but some amazing information and artifacts. Check to see hours before planning a trip as they reduce their hours in the baseball off-season.

I cannott say enough wonderful things about our visit to League Park and the Baseball Heritage Museum. Before we left for Cleveland I had read the book "Deadball: A Metaphysical Baseball Novel" (David Stinson) which got me interested in League Park. I then read "League Park: Historic Home of Cleveland Baseball 1891-1946" (Ken Krsolovic and Bryan Fritz) and I knew we HAD to go visit this park. I lived in the Cleveland area when I was young and was a huge Indians fan but I never knew about this park until I was older. I cannot thank the city of Cleveland enough for saving this field. Even though the old stadium was torn down, a field was built with the same dimensions as the park and home plate is exactly where home plate once was. I got goosebumps and choked up imaging Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Joe Jackson, Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb and so many others playing baseball on this field. Babe Ruth loved this field because it was only 290 to right field. He hit his 500th home run here. Even though the right field fence was short the fascinating "screen monster", a wall 5 feet taller than the Green Monster in Fenway challenged hitters. The fence is recreated exactly the way it was. When we go there we were sad that the field was not open for us to walk around but while I was sitting quietly taking it all in the groundskeeper saw us and came to open the gates for us. I was so over whelmed to see my son stand on the mound where Bob Feller and Cy Young pitched no-hitters. He (pretend) batted from the plate where so many great hitters once stood. We ran the bases imaging the crowd in the stands cheering. It was surreal. It was a step back in time - back to a time I have always dreamed of seeing. The museum was wonderful and we loved talking to the volunteers. There are a ton of great thins to see in the museum so make sure to stop when it is open. This truly was a dream come true for me and a visit that I will never forget. I am so, so thrilled that this field is such a part of the community now and that we got a chance to feel the history of all that has happened here in the past.
