College Baseball Hall Of Fame

Did you know there was a campaign to build and create a College Baseball Hall Of Fame? Read on...

In 2009, college baseball in the United States celebrated its 150th anniversary. Until recently, there was not a national entity in place to honor and showcase the game's rich past and to annually celebrate current collegiate baseball achievements.

The College Baseball Foundation, an established 501(c)(3), was created to become the founder of the National College Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame to distinguish this important and ongoing history.

The CBF will utilize charitable gifts for the construction of the National College Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame in Lubbock, Texas and also currently utilizes gifts to expand the awareness and visibility of college baseball's past, present and future.

The National College Baseball Hall of Fame inductions and College Baseball Awards Show honoring the nation's current top teams, individual players and coaches take place on consecutive evenings annually in order to connect significant contributions to the game. Both shows are broadcast nationally.

The capital campaign for the National College Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame totals $18 million to endow the project and and we are making substantial progress toward the goal.

The College Baseball Foundation welcomes and appreciates your consideration of a charitable gift. Federal 501(c)(3) documentation and other support documents are provided upon request.
