A year ago, we checked in on the construction site of the future home of the CCBL Hall of Fame, the Total Athletics of Cape Cod Training Center in Hyannis. Things weren't going well.
Unfortunately, things still aren't going well. The Cape Cod Times has reported that the project "has been mired in lawsuits and delays, and now may not even be built on land cleared to make way for the project." The project's completion date was supposed to be July 1, 2018.
The CCBL Hall of Fame and Museum was open from July 2008 to January 2017 in the basement of the John F. Kennedy Museum Hyannis. For the price of admission to the JFK Museum, you could take the elevator down to "The Dugout" and spend an hour or two browsing all of the artifacts and reading the HOF plaques. It was awesome. It was much better than the blown up photos of the Kennedy family on the main level.
For two years now, the Hall has been without a home. I hope all the artifacts are in safe locations.
With the latest news about Total Athletics, I would hope that the league is considering other locations. I think the perfect spot would be a standalone museum and gift shop on Main Street in Hyannis. But, given the investment, I'm sure the league prefers a public place with an existing staff that could operate the museum with limited additional cost. One rumored location is the Cape Cod Community College. I'm not sure if the Wilkens Library has any space at all, but all Cape residents and visitors are welcome there. One thing is for sure: that'd be better than what we have now (nothing).
