A pop-up museum of baseball memorabilia featuring items from the Hall of Fame will open at Dodger Stadium Friday.
The museum will include the Hall of Fame’s “Picturing America’s Pastime” photo exhibit of 51 framed photographs representing its collection of approximately a quarter-million images.
The museum will also include items on loan from famed collector Gary Cypres’ extensive collection related to Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Johnny Podres and Ebbets Field artifacts.
Artifacts from the Dodgers’ historical collections will be on display, including a baseball signed by the 1953 National League All-Star team, Shawn Green’s broken bat and Mike Piazza’s catcher’s equipment. Items on loan by former Dodgers include Fernando Valenzuela’s 1981 National League Cy Young award.
The exhibit will also feature Vin Scully items, jerseys, game-used bats and a display honoring Dodger shortstop Corey Seager, the 2016 National League Rookie of the Year; manager Dave Roberts, the 2016 National League Manager of the Year, and pitcher Clayton Kershaw, the 2014 National League MVP and Cy Young Award winner.
The museum is located in the left-field reserve level team store. Admission is $10.
