We need your help!
We are working on a new display that will showcase uniforms on mannequins from each decade in the 1900's. If you or someone you know owns a uniform used in the 1920s we would greatly appreciate your help in allowing us to display how baseball uniforms have changed throughout the years. Please contact the Museum Office if you have any information regarding this matter.
2014 Annual Patron Donor Campaign
Since the first Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame induction banquet was held at Brandon University in 1997, 247individuals, 53 teams and 16 special groups have been recognized.
We have a wonderful museum located in the Morden Access Centre which showcases the inductees and promotes the heritage and history of baseball in Manitoba. Only two other baseball museums exist in the country, one at North Battleford, Saskatchewan and the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Mary’s, Ontario.
The Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum currently has one major source of revenue to finance the organization and the operation of the museum – the induction banquet. Additional sources of revenue are needed to maintain the high quality standards that have been set. We are continuing with our annual patron donor campaign for those who would like to see that these high standards are being maintained.
The suggested donation for this campaign will be $50 for an individual and $100 for a corporation or organization. Please feel free to donate more if you wish. Benefits include an optional income tax receipt, names listed in our newsletter and on the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame web site, and the opportunity to support a worthy cause. We need your support to help our museum in its efforts to maintain a top class and flourishing facility.
Many of our current supporters do have a life membership and we invite them to support our patron program so our volunteer driven organization can meet its ongoing responsibilities.
Every person making a patron donation on or before the annual induction ceremony on June 07,2014 will be eligible to win a cash prize
A donation form is available and can be found on the Manitoba Hall of Fame web site at www.mbhof.ca. Cheques or credit card information along with the completed form may be mailed to our secretary-treasurer. David Olsen 552 Jubilee Ave. Winnipeg R3L 1P2
