Another MLB World Series in the books means new artifacts for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.
On Wednesday night the Houston Astros won their first World Series in the team’s 56-year history, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in game seven of the series.
After game seven, the following items were donated to the Hall of Fame:
- Glove used by Astros third baseman Alex Bregman
- Jersey worn by Astros pitcher Justin Verlander in game six
- Cap worn by Astros pitcher Charlie Morton in game seven, when he picked up the victory with four innings of relief work to end the game
These artifacts and others from the 2017 post-season will be featured in the “Autumn Glory” exhibit in Cooperstown, which will be on display though the 2018 post-season.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is open seven days per week throughout the whole year, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.
