Earlier this spring we took a day trip to St. Marys, Ontario for a mini baseball tournament on the fields of Canada’s Baseball Hall of Fame. I had never been to the CBHOF. I was amazed at how small the actual Hall is.
The Hall (and Museum) is located in a former home on a parcel of land donated to the Hall by the St. Marys Cement Company.
While the home may be small, there is so much on display on the main floor and even more stored away on the second floor.
I remember watching this game in my parents living room. George Bell was, and always has been, my favourite baseball player.
Toronto once tried to acquire the Giants baseball team. They even had stationary made!
Yes, the Babe played in Canada before his MLB career began.
The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, in Hamilton, Ontario is a Canadian aviation museum and has over 30 military jets, propeller-driven aircraft and helicopters on display. However, it is so much more than a display. With the amazing volunteers, staff, exhibits, and workshops, the Museum is a fascinating place for kids (and adults) of all ages and interest levels.
This past weekend our Cub Scout pack visited the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum for a special Night Ops event. Outside of accompanying my son (who is a member of the Cub pack) my real desire was to talk to someone who could shed a little light on the whole Avro Arrow mystery. I have my theories. 😉
It was a wonderful event and I’m glad I went. Here are some photos for all of you to enjoy.
