Jensen: Baseball history comes to life at unique baseball museums

From SABR member Chris Jensen at Seamheads.com on October 16, 2013:

Once the baseball playoffs come to a conclusion, baseball fans are forced to sit around and count the days until spring training arrives. Predicting who will go in the next Marlins’ fire sale is just not as exciting as watching live game action. However, late fall and winter don’t have to be periods devoid of meaningful baseball activity. The offseason is an excellent time to hit the road and discover how baseball history comes to life in some of the outstanding baseball museums around the country.

In my book Baseball State by State I highlight some of the historic baseball places to be found around the United States and Canada, and many of those sites are baseball museums.

I grew up just outside Cooperstown, N.Y., so I’ve been spoiled by many trips to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. You cannot call yourself a real baseball fan if you’ve never been to Cooperstown, so that should be at the top of your must-see list. I could go on and on about all the neat things to see there, but what follows is a rundown of all the other cool baseball museums to visit in the United States plus one in Canada (listed alphabetically by state).
