Hold a Piece of History

Yes. You Really Get To Do This.

Hold a Piece of History

Truth be told, our curator was a little freaked out when we decided to let guests hold bats that were actually used by the greatest players in the game. We’re talkin’ legends like Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench, David Ortiz, Derek Jeter and many more past and present heroes.

These are genuine artifacts, real pieces of history. And, yes, you get to hold them!

We pioneered this hands-on approach to sharing a museum collection with our Hold a Piece of History exhibit. The experience proved so popular we now have at least one bat from every major league team, including your favorite.

Project H&B ID: putting names with the faces of Hillerich & Bradsby Co.

Their names are unknown for now, but they helped build a worldwide icon and a new mission is underway to learn who they are. From September 27th through November 1st, this photo exhibit of former factory workers will be on display. This special exhibit features 25 photographs dating back to the 1930s that all feature H&B workers whose names have been lost through the years.
