Hello everyone,


My name is Jim and I am a Volunteer here at the National Ballpark Museum. It is a privilege and a pleasure to have the opportunity to write about baseball for the museum here in Denver. I would like to give a special thanks to Creator and Curator, Bruce Hellerstein and General Manager, Raelee Frazier. Bruce has brought Major League Baseball history to life at the museum. It is recognized by Smithsonian Books as one of largest private collections in the world. It is also a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.


My goals are simple. I hope to share a few stories that baseball enthusiasts will enjoy. I also hope to spread the word about this remarkable museum that is located right here ‘in the shadow of Coors Field’!

The museum is open year round! I hope you all will visit the museum when you can and please leave feedback on the Blog about things that you would like to hear about. Denver has a rich baseball history and along with the MLB artifacts, the museum has one of the largest collections of local professional baseball memorabilia.

See ya at the museum!

  2. Aloha Jim – Just happened to run across your museum while browsing the internet while preparing for a vacation to Colorado. I was there a day before my family and decided to take in the museum. I thought it would be a quick 30 minutes before heading over to Coors for batting practice…well over an hour later…it was that engaging. Growing up in Hawaii, I was humbled to see Joey Meyer remembered and honored at the museum. Enjoyed my visit, thanks for a great baseball experience.

  3. Hello Kaleo,

Yes, Bruce Hellerstien has spend years putting together this private collection and he just wants to share it with baseball lovers like yourself. Have a great week! Jim Slade
