Spikes Worn by Great Players
Tuesday, April 24, through Sunday, June 3, 2012,
at Exhibition Hall of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

This is the first exhibition focusing on a display of spikes in the long history of our Baseball Museum. Spikes are a basic implement to support and enhance the performance of baseball players.
In the upcoming exhibition, about 80 present and former professional players, Japanese and American including Victor Starffin and successive leaders in stolen bases headed by Yutaka Fukumoto, are represented by their cherished spikes.
Under the auspices of Asics Co., three pairs of spikes (2001, 2003 and 2012) worn by Ichiro Suzuki will be displayed as a special attraction.
Other players whose spikes may be viewed include Tadashi Wakabayashi, Sachio Kinugasa, Koji Akiyama, Norihiro Akahoshi, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Yu Darvish, Cecil Fielder, and Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz.
It is hoped visitors to the Museum will have a good view of the displays and appreciate the changes in material, design and (mostly reduction of) weight of the spiked shoes.
