The museum was founded in October 1983 in Toronto at Exhibition Place and later moved to Ontario Place theme park.
In 1994, it moved to St. Marys, Ontario.
The Hall of Fame and Museum is dedicated to preserving Canada's baseball heritage which dates back to June 4, 1838, when a game which very closely resembled today's game of baseball was played in Beachville, Ontario.
The Hall gained some major attention when Pete Rose became eligible for election for earning his 4,000th MLB hit while playing with the Montreal Expos in 1984, however Rose has yet to be elected to the Hall.
Since opening, 117 individual members and teams have been inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame as of 2016.
This includes professional ballplayers, amateurs, builders, teams, and honorary members who have helped popularize the sport in Canada.
In addition, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame awards the Tip O'Neill Award annually to the Canadian baseball player "judged to have excelled in individual achievement and team contribution while adhering to the highest ideals of the game of baseball" and the Jack Graney Award for Lifetime Media Achievement.
The 32 acre facility in St. Marys also includes four baseball fields designed by landscape architect Art Lierman of London, Ontario.See: Pearson Cup
