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 ceremony 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 Fame is 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.
