September 13, 2014-We’ve just discovered that our trip to Cuba, which was tentatively scheduled for February, is actually happening in November. Only two months away! We need your help. If you’ve been thinking of donating, now is the time. If you haven’t visited our gofundme page, stop on by and find out about the amazing rewards you can get for your donation. But, even more importantly, you get to become a part of the first crowd-sourced artifact ever donated to the Baseball Hall of Fame. How cool is that?
Special thanks to All-Star Bill Cornell for his donation today. Visit our thanks page to find out who else is joining us on our trip to the Hall.
September 3, 2014-Lots of updates to the website today, including bios for Richie Ashburn, Johnny Bench, Bert Blyleven, George Brett, Joe McCarthy, Sam Thompson, Lloyd Waner and Hack Wilson. Even more exciting, we’ve added 48 more photos of the Ball with your favorite Hall of Famers. In addition to the names above, you can now also view the ball with Dave Bancroft, Jimmy Collins, Charles Comiskey, Kiki Cuyler, Rube Foster, Lou Gehrig, Charlie Gehringer, Josh Gibson, Pat Gillick, Burleigh Grimes, Jesse Haines, Harry Heilmann, Whitey Herzog, Pete Hill, Reggie Jackson, Walter Johnson, Judy Johnson, Al Kaline, Buck Leonard, Larry MacPhail, Mickey Mantle, Juan Marichal, Rube Marquard, Joe Morgan, Hal Newhouser, Phil NIekro, Hank O’Day, Jim Palmer, Alex Pompez, Ron Santo, Louis Santop, Al Simmons, Enos Slaughter, Turkey Stearnes, Ben Taylor, Frank Thomas, Joe Torre, Willie Wells, Smokey Joe Williams, Jud Wilson, Hack Wilson and Early Wynn.
Be sure to check out Santo and Wynn. They were both cremated and their ashes were spread in very special places.
Keep checking in. With 210 of the 306 Hall of Famers already a part of the project, there’s even more to come as we make the final push for the completion of The Hall Ball.
