It is the most exclusive club in sports, and election to the Baseball Hall of Fame means that you have become immortal to the fans of the game.
The oak walls of the Hall of Fame gallery in Cooperstown are lined with the bronze plaques that tell us the stories of the men and women who have shaped our National Pastime. Since 1983, Matthews International in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been the exclusive provider of those plaques and from the initial clay sculpting to the final touch-ups, Matthews takes great pride in their role in the annual induction ceremonies. Many people are involved in the creation of the plaques, here a few of them tell the story of the process.
The permanence of the bronze plaques is a testament to each Hall of Fame member’s impact on the game. For generations, the gallery has been and will continue to be the ultimate tribute to legendary baseball careers.
