Hall of Fame establishes a Commissioner’s archive

12 Comments

Major League Baseball has announced that the Hall of Fame has established an archive for the papers of MLB Commissioners. Sort of like a presidential library, I assume.  From the press release. Quotes from Jane Forbes Clark, Chairman of the Hall of Fame:

“This archive will provide a central location for the study and research of the importance of the Office of the Commissioner, and its role in shaping and advancing the National Pastime for nearly a century.”

The new, permanent addition to the Hall of Fame Library features a private research space that celebrates the role of the Office of the Commissioner and pays tribute to the nine Commissioners who have guided Major League Baseball since Kenesaw Mountain Landis was named the game’s first Commissioner in 1920.

I can’t wait to see all of exhibit and documents about collusion!
