Baseball Museum 2: San Diego Hall of Champions

The San Diego Hall of Champions was not even originally on the plan and we did not even realize it existed until we saw it across the parking lot from the San Diego Automotive Museum. One of the main sections of the museum is a baseball exhibit and the only other sport with a decent section is football. There are a several other sports represented, but most just have one little display each.

We pretty much just checked out the Baseball section since Mik was getting burnt out and obnoxious again. The Baseball section was pretty cool. It was mostly about the Padres and it was interesting to learn about the history of the team from being a Minor League to the current Major League team. It also had some interesting displays with Major League players with ties to the San Diego area, such as Ted Williams. It was actually a lot of fun to see this museum, especially since we did not know it was there.

This museum is a must see for Padres fans. The Ted Williams display is great and I enjoyed seeing Tony Gwynn's eight National League Batting Championship silver bats and his five Golden Gloves.
