Christian’s Eye on Cleveland
By: Christian Patterson
Today I have a question for you guys: How much do you really know about our national pastime? When you really think about it do you know a lot about baseball’s history? The sport that Americans call their national pastime? The Baseball Heritage Museum is more than just baseball stories. It’s a real education on former players and coaches connected with the rich diversity of our nation’s pastime. The museum is home to tons of stories, photographs, letters, programs, uniforms and other game used treasures.
I had a chance to sit down with owner Robert Zimmer to discuss the Heritage Museum and the great things they have to offer baseball fans from around the world. After finding out a lot of information regarding the Baseball Heritage Museum, how it was started and the purpose of its existence, owner Robert Zimmer took me on a tour to actually explain a lot of the items acquired for the museum.
The mission of the museum is to preserve and present the history of diversity in baseball by entertaining, educating and enlightening the visiting public about the multicultural heritage of baseball and the values it represents. The Baseball Heritage Museum is located at 530 Euclid Avenue. If you would like to see any of the exhibits the hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11am to 1:30pm or by appointment. Their number is 216-406-5729.
