The 5,000 square foot museum will be the home to more than 300 items from the baseball Hall of Famers career, spanning from his early days in Little League, his time playing and coaching at SDSU and, of course, his entire Padres career, and will be occasionally rotated out to keep things fresh and new.
They are planning to complete the project by the 2016 MLB All-Star game, that will be hosted right here in San Diego at Petco Park on July 12th. To accomplish their goal, they are going to attempt to raise some funds.
Similar to Petco Park, customizable bricks will be available for purchase.
They also will be crowdfunding through Generosity starting on February 16th. They will have different levels of prizes, including t-shirts, tours, baseball cards and more. Keep an eye out for that.
