The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is located in St. Marys, ON. It was founded as a non-profit, charitable foundation in October 1983 with the mission of "preserving Canada’s rich baseball heritage." It was originally located in Toronto, ON at Exhibition Place and later moved to Ontario Place through 1989. The Hall moved to St. Marys in 1994 and opened in its current location in 1998. 106 members have been inducted into the Hall, including professional players, amateur players, builders and honourary members who have helped popularize the sport in Canada. The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame also gives out the Tip O'Neill Award annually.

[edit] Nomination and Eligibility

  • Selection is not restricted to Canadians; is open to anyone who has contributed to baseball in Canada, either on the field, in an administrative capacity, or in a combination of ways.
  • Selection is open to both amateurs and professionals.
  • If he/she has contributed significantly to baseball in other ways, a player does not have to have had a lengthy playing career to be considered for induction. However, on-field performance is an important consideration when judging the qualifications of former players.
  • For a player to be eligable he/she must be retired for three years.

[edit] Selection

  • The selection committee is composed of the board of governors of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as three members of the media and representatives of each province.
  • To gain induction an individual must receive 75% of the vote.
  • A maximum of five individuals (excluding those named as honourary members) may be selected in any year and it is not mandatory that inductees be named annually.
  • The person will stay on the ballot for nine years, provided they receive a minimum of one vote every two years.
