Welcome to the official website of the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame. We hope you will enjoy your stay and come back to visit us often.

Founded in 1969 by Portland Press Herald sportswriter Vern Putney and baseball impresario John (Magnate) Haley, the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving and promoting the rich history of baseball in Maine and honoring those who have had a lasting impact on it.

From sandlot to Hadlock, players coaches, umpires, organizers and benefactors who have achieved prominence in, or made valuable contributions to, baseball in Maine are recognized and commemorated within  these pages.  Whether they be local town team heroes or major league icons, they have all contributed abundantly to weave the rich tapestry that is baseball in Maine.   It is our privilege to honor their accomplishments and bring their stories to you.
