The Original Baseball Hall of Fame Museum of Minnesota
The all-free Baseball Museum was founded in 1986 by Ray Crump and closed when the downtown store was moved West to St Louis Park. Ray was originally a batboy for the Washington Senators. When the Senators moved to Minnesota in 1961, he came North with them to become the Twins first equipment manager.
Kirby Puckett will forever live in the hearts of Minnesota fans as well as baseball fans from around the world. We had dedicated a case to this remarkable athlete.
After retiring from the organization in 1984, Ray wanted to share some of the items he collected throughout the years. The museum focused on these items. There are World Series bats, jerseys, autographed baseballs and photos, clubhouse books, displays on how to make baseball bats and gloves, and many other items.
The Museum was a self guided tour next to the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Thefree museum was a popular place to stop on the way to a Metrodome Event.
There were collectibles from Elvis Presley and Memorabilia from the Beatles trip to Minnesota in 1965.
