The Baseball Hall of Fame honors the San Diego Chicken on display in a handsome showcase feature dubbed, A Whole New Ballgame.

In its spring edition, the Hall’s official magazine, Memories and Dreams, has a pictorial spread that highlights a glass encased, mounted version of the famous fowl greeting visitors at the entrance of the museum’s, “Chicken Wing.” Sports fans have regularly posed for selfies next to this premiere mascot monument.

Over the years, the outfit has appeared in several presentations with the HOF since requesting performer Ted Giannoulas’ coat of feathers in the late 90s.
