HALL OF CHAMPIONS HOSTS AN AUCTION

The Hall of Champions museum was closed to the public in June of 2017 in order to complete the museum deaccession process and move the Breitbard Hall of Fame to Petco Park. The museum was closed because it was not sustainable. However, its closure will enable us to redirect funds to continue and expand all of the other Hall of Champions programs, including monthly and annual awards, community outreach initiatives, and the Breitbard Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame will soon be open at Petco Park, where visitors can experience it on game days or during Petco Park ballpark tours.
