Celebrating the History of Cedar Rapids Baseball
The Cedar Rapids Ball Club, Inc. Hall of Fame honors those individuals who, through extraordinary personal effort, have furthered the existence, quality or preservation of professional baseball in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Hall of Fame was established in 1999 and is comprised of 69 members. Two of them, John McGraw and Lou Boudreau, played here, went on to Major League careers, and are members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. On display are Hall of Fame plaques, baseball memorabilia and championship trophies.
The Cedar Rapids Baseball History Timeline was established in 2011. The timeline tells the story of Cedar Rapids baseball beginning in 1890 as the Canaries with a young John McGraw to 2010 as the Kernels with speedster Mike Trout. In addition to 24 large posters, the timeline includes championship banners, jerseys dating back to the early 1900's, autographed bats, balls, pictures and a display saluting Veterans of World Wars.
The Hall of Fame is located on the main level of the stadium in the Bimm Ridder Diamond Shop.
The History Timeline is located on the Suite level of the stadium.
Both are FREE and open to the public during regular business hours. FREE Tours are also offered during Kernels games. For more Information, please call 319-363-3887.
