Tim Mead, who has spent 40 years in baseball, was named President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum on June 24, 2019. Mead oversees the daily operation of the non-profit, educational institution, whose mission is to preserve history, honor excellence and connect generations.
The organization first opened in 1939 and today employs nearly 100 full-time staff members, welcoming more than 17 million visitors since opening.
The Museum’s collections contain more than 40,000 three-dimensional artifacts, as well as nearly 200,000 baseball cards. The Library catalogs and preserves nearly three million documents including 250,000 historic images and 14,000 hours of original audio and video recordings.
Before joining the Baseball Hall of Fame, Mead spent his entire baseball career with the Los Angeles Angels organization, including his final 22 years as the team’s Vice President of Communications. In that role, Mead oversaw the team’s media relations, publicity and broadcasting operations. Immediately prior, he served as Angels’ Assistant General Manager from 1994-97. Mead, who began his career as an intern in the Angels’ Public Relations department in 1980, was appointed Director of Media Relations in 1985 and assumed the role of Assistant Vice President of Media Relations in 1991.
