The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is showcasing some items from the 1919 World Series, some of it on loan from collectors and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
The exhibit includes two balls used in the 1919 World Series, on loan from one Midwest collector, one of which was hit by Shoeless Joe Jackson for the final out. There is silent-film footage of the series, which has proven very popular since opening in May.
Spreading out over 16,000 feet of space, the Reds’ Hall of Fame and Museum opened in 1994 at a cost of $10 million. The goal was to create a family-oriented attraction that would include memorabilia as well as interactive exhibits and themed areas.
A story in the Huntington Herald-Dispatch indicates "There are hundreds of jerseys, bats, balls and other artifacts, many loaned by collectors such as Cron, and eye-catching touches such as a nearly one-ton wooden replica of a bat honoring the ’69 Red Stockings and a 30-foot-high wall display of 4,256 baseballs, representing Rose’s career hit total. A new display has the baseball and special Reds jacket from President Bush’s ceremonial first pitch on opening day this year."
