And, the first 50 kids under the age of 17 will receive a free regulation baseball.
Inside the museum you’ll find a thorough account of the past 128 years, including information on the Western Minny years, the box score from the 22-strike-out game, bats, balls and gloves used by Fairfax’s famous, jerseys, trophies, autographed Dana Kiecker items, baseballs autographed by Tony Oliva, Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Ernie Banks, Pete Rose and many others.
Come and check it out – you won’t find a more complete display of artifacts or photos detailing Fairfax’s baseball history anywhere.
