Exhibit Honoring World Series Champion Dodgers Now Open at Hall of Fame
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – In a season unlike any other, the Los Angeles Dodgers gave baseball fans an unforgettable championship run.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate the Dodgers’ 2020 World Series championship through Autumn Glory, the Museum’s tribute to the postseason in Cooperstown. The display honoring the 2020 champions is now open, and entrance to Autumn Glory is included with Museum admission.
Following Los Angeles’ World Series-clinching win on Oct. 27, the Museum acquired several artifacts from the Dodgers, who notched the franchise’s first Fall Classic crown in 32 seasons – and seventh overall – with their victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in the 116th World Series. Artifacts donated by the Dodgers and featured in the exhibit celebrating the 2020 postseason include:
- The ball thrown by Clayton Kershaw for the opening pitch in Game 1, he first neutral-site game in Series history
- A bat used by NLCS and World Series MVP Corey Seager during Game 6
- The road jersey worn by Mookie Betts in Games 3, 4 and 5
- The batting helmet worn by Max Muncy during the World Series
- A jacket worn by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts throughout the World Series
- A mask worn by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts during the season
- A mask worn by Dodgers third base coach Dino Ebel during the World Series
Additional artifacts from the 2020 postseason that will be part of Autumn Glory include:
- A bat used by the Rays’ Randy Arozarena in Game 4 of the World Series when he established a record for most home runs in one postseason
- A jersey worn by the Rays’ Ji-Man Choi during Game 2 of the World Series when he became the first Korean-born position player to start a World Series game
- The spikes worn by the Rays’ Brett Phillips when he drove in the winning run of Game 4 of the World Series
The 2020 World Series exhibit in Autumn Glory will be on display through the conclusion of the 2021 Major League Baseball postseason.
In 2021, the Museum will continue its salute to the Dodgers World Championship of 2020 with special programming to be announced in the spring.
The Museum collections contain many artifacts documenting the entire history of World Series and postseason play, including Don Larsen’s cap and Yogi Berra’s mitt from Larsen’s 1956 perfect game; Joe Carter’s bat from his Series-ending blast in 1993; the jersey David Freese wore when he hit his game-winning home run in Game 6 in 2011; and World Series rings from the last century of Fall Classic competition.
