Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame

In 1953, the Maryland Hall of Fame inducted it first class of “all-stars,” which included the baseball greats Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, and Frank “Home Run” Baker. Ever since, this list of native-born Maryland sons and daughters – some of the region’s greatest athletes – has grown. The only problem is that this Hall of Fame has never had a home. Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards has eliminated that problem. The exhibit is now housed in our lower level.

Using biographical sketches and photographs of the more than 200 athletes inducted into the Hall, the Museum tells the stories of the state’s greatest baseball, football, lacrosse, and track stars. Add to that the interesting stories of duckpin bowlers, swimmers, and tennis stars and this gallery will engage all levels of sports fans. Rare artifacts such as Frank “Home Run” Baker’s New York Yankees sweater from 1922, Don Kelley’s 1932 Olympic lacrosse jersey and Jimmie Foxx’s catcher’s mask and Red Sox warm-up jacket are all on display.
