TED WILLIAMS MUSEUM AND HITTERS HALL OF FAME
Inducted into the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame in 2011
What this Museum is all about is best described in Ted’s own words: “Through the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame, we hope to build a lasting monument, an architectural tribute to what I think is the single most difficult thing in all of sports: hitting a baseball. We hope the Museum will become a place millions of baseball fans will visit and enjoy for generations to come. I hope you’ll join us as we transform our dreams into reality.” Previously located in Hernando, Florida, in Citrus County, a few blocks from where Ted Williams himself lived during his later years, the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame is the first Museum ever dedicated, at the time, to a living athlete. The Museum’s goal is to preserve and build on the rich tradition and heritage of our national pastime — baseball. The Museum’s mission is one of outreach and education.
The Museum could never operate but for the enormous assistance of a dedicated corps of volunteers who make all the difference. It is a true “labor of love” for the many who have helped the Museum since it first opened in February of 1994.
