Running low on energy, we descended to the first floor and the rightly named Cathedral of Baseball – the Hall of Fame, which does resemble a cathedral in many ways. Its blessed saints, the best players are immortalized in bronze plaques on the light colored plywood walls, guarded by ebony stone columns that lead you onward into the apse, where the five first players – and the newest inductees are attached to the wall.

Here, the only two statues to the greats stand – Babe Ruth and Ted Williams, immortalized in full color for all time, in addition to their stations on the walls. One should note that in addition to the various plaques, those who served in the military were honored by a minute medallion below their plaque, noting the service they were in and the war they fought.
