Join us for the Baseball Reliquary’s signature annual event, the Shrine of the Eternals awards and induction ceremony, often referred to as the“People’s Hall of Fame,” for a focus more on stories than statistics. The event will feature a memorial tribute to the Reliquary’s late, visionary founder, Terry Cannon. The elected enshrineesare: Bob Costas, legendary sports broadcaster; Andrew “Rube” Foster, founder of the Negro National League; and Max Patkin, “Clown Prince of Baseball.” Receiving the Hilda Award for distinguished service to the game by a baseball fan is Jeff Boujoukos, who has collected game-used bats from hundreds of Red Sox players from 1960 to the present. Alex Belth, curator of The Stacks Reader, will receive the Tony Salin Memorial Award recognizing their commitment to the preservation of baseball history. Following the ceremony, there will be a reception with music, refreshments, and access to theSomething in Common exhibition, which features a display of the Baseball Reliquary.
