The Baseball Hall of Fame is facing financial challenges and a drop in attendance due to the impact of COVID-19. The organization’s revenue declined from $9.43 million in 2021 to $2.36 million in 2022. The Hall of Fame relied on public grants to make up for the lost revenue during the pandemic, but those funds have now ended. The decrease in revenue has been attributed to a decrease in program services, such as ticket sales and merchandise sales, as well as a decrease in private donations. Attendance for recent induction ceremonies has also decreased significantly, from 55,000 in 2019 to an estimated 10,000 in 2022. The Hall of Fame is working to rebound financially by improving its exhibits and hosting new events. However, there are concerns about the institution’s relevance and its ability to attract visitors in the future.
