shrine of the eternals induction day
the baseball reliquary is one of this area's most incredible treasures - part memorabilia collection, part historic preservation, and all baseball celebration. the reliquary frequently put on incredible displays of obscure baseball artifacts, artwork, and presentations, that are open to the public.
part of their legacy is an annual selection of baseball pioneers to their "shrine of the eternals". 33 baseball icons have been inducted to their hall of fame, ranging from josh gibson (known as the black babe ruth), to jim abbott (a pitcher who played in the big leagues despite having only one hand). this month the main branch of the pasadena public library is displaying a collection of items paying homage to these 33 individuals, and this coming sunday the reliquary is set to induct three more.
this event is free to the public, and if you are interested in reading about my experience from last year, you can check it out right here.
