Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame

Every Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Member

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum is physically located in St. Marys, Ontario, Canada. The museum commemorates great players, teams, and accomplishments of baseball in Canada.

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame was founded in 1978, by Bruce Prentice, of Toronto, Ontario. The first induction ceremonies was held in 1983, at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto, prior to a game between the Yankees and the Blue Jays.

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fameis dedicated to preserving Canada's baseball heritage which dates back to June 4, 1838, when a game closely resembling today's baseball was played in Beachville, Ontario. The Hall gained some major attention when Pete Rose became eligible for earning his 4,000th hit with the Montreal Expos. However Rose has yet to be elected to the Hall.

Since opening, over 100 members have been inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. It includes professional ballplayers, amateurs, builders and honorary members who have helped popularize the sport in Canada. Listed below in yearly induction order is the complete membership to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. Members are selected by a committee and they are placed in order by their year of induction on the chart below.

"Baseball is like a poker game. Nobody wants to quit when he's losing; nobody wants you to quit when you're ahead." - Canadian Hall of Famer (1991) Jackie Robinson in Giants of Baseball (Bill Gutman, Ace Books Publishing, 01/1975, Page 38)
