Facebook

A national hall of fame located in Lubbock is closer to getting permanent headquarters.

The National College Baseball Hall of Fame has been awarded $5 million as a capital campaign grant from the Moody Foundation, based in Galveston, Texas.

The Hall of Fame now has around $7 million total saved up toward their goal of a permanent facility and an adjoining baseball field.

Their total campaign goal is $13 million, with $9 million needed for facility construction and a $4 million endowment.

“The timing couldn’t be more perfect to support the College Baseball Hall of Fame given the Moody history with baseball and economic development,” said Frances Moody-Dahlberg, executive director of the Moody Foundation.

“Generous support from within Lubbock, across Texas, and around the country are all important components in realizing this national treasure,” said Jana Howser, Hall of Fame vice president of development.

A press release says that the National College Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will be dedicated to preserving the artifacts and stories that tell the history of college baseball and to providing educational opportunities for visitors.

The group also says that their Hall of Fame complex will also include a baseball field for youth tournaments and other amateur baseball events.
