Edgar Martinez was the only Mariner that we saw. Ichiro and Ken Griffey have some current records but you have to be five years retired before you get in the hall of fame.
My favorite part of the museum was the plaque hall. It was about 1500 feet (almost the size of our house in Washington!) I liked it because when I read about a hall of famer in a book, I usually see him holding the plaque for a picture. So I was excited to see these when I came here. These are the ones that really stood out to me: Willie Stargel, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson and Cal Ripken.
Josiah took a picture of me with Cal Ripken's plaque. I went to Cal's camp this summer and got his signature. It was really cool. I keep the ball in a glass case on my bed. I like him a lot, he's a nice person.
The Hall of Fame was awesome, and for the scavenger hunt we won a free pack of Hall of Fame baseball cards. All is well!! -JJ
