Back in January of this year Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza were elected to the Hall of Fame. Their induction will occur two weeks after we’re there. Ken Griffey Jr. has been our son Chip’s favorite play all his life so this will be a big Hall of Fame induction for for him!
Some of the Museum stores items and a look at the store.

Remember you can click on any photo to enlarge it! All that I’ve included in these three blog posts is just a tiny bit of what all we saw. I took photos of things related to players I like so your experience probably would be quite different. If you’re a baseball enthusiast I recommend going there one day.
One of the absolute best things about our visit was hearing dads and sometimes moms share stories about players achievments with their sons and daughters. What memories that’s creating!
As I finish up this on Sunday afternoon we just arrived at Three Valley Campground in Holland, NY. Either Monday or Tuesday, or maybe both, we’ll go to see the amazing Niagara Falls from both the US and the Canadian sides!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
