I was born and raised in NJ and have lived there all my life until a few months back when I retired and moved to the wonderful state of Colorado. I’ve loved baseball for as long as I can remember, but my first real vivid memories of it are of the 1969 Miracle Mets. The […]

Hank Turner

Let me introduce myself. I am Hank Turner, 10 years old, a 4th grader at Isabella Bird school, and the youngest volunteer at the National Ballpark Museum.

Jim Slade

My name is Jim Slade and I have been a volunteer at the National Ballpark Museum for almost two years. I stumbled in one day as a tourist and was so welcomed by Raelee, the Museum Manager, that I decided to stay. It is truly an extraordinary collection of baseball heaven. Baseball has been a […]

I am a proud Jersey boy and die hard Yankees fan who went to my first game at the age of 6 weeks old. The best part about volunteering is sharing stories with folks about how baseball brought their families and communities together! My favorite relic is the vintage Yankee Stadium usher uniform.
