The Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame

What better way to say Happy St. Patrick's Day and talk baseball than write about the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame.

Located at Foley's NY Pub and Restaurant  on 18 West 33rd Street in New York City, the IABHOF honors the Immigrants of our great country and the game of baseball.

⚾⚾⚾Foley's calls itself  "An Irish Bar with a Baseball Attitude. "

Foley's was opened in 2004 by a man named Shaun Clancy, who named the bar after famed baseball writer and official scorer, Red Foley.

The original IABHOF Induction, including Red Foley, was in 2008.

Last year's inductees included former big league manager Jack McKeon and actor Bill Murray.

Foley's has today, on this St.Patty's Day, become the newest item on my baseball bucket list.

I'm sure they're having a swell time at Foley's today, I wish them all the best of luck.

Play Ball!
