A burst pipe ruins artifacts at the Baseball Heritage Museum in Cleveland

I’ve never been to the Baseball Heritage Museum in Cleveland, which houses all manner of artifacts from the Negro Leagues as well as old-timey Latin American baseball stuff.  But I’ve heard good things about it and had made a point to check it out next time I’m there. Unfortunately, it may not be there. And if it is, it may be light on memorabilia:

A flood at the Baseball Heritage & Broadcast Museum in the Colonial Arcade destroyed part of Cleveland’s history a week ago. A pipe burst in the ceiling of the museum and went unnoticed for several days, creating 4-8 inches of water on the basement floor.

It’s also a broadcasting museum, and according to the article most of the damage was in that portion.

Sad jams.
