Baseball's post-season is just around the corner and Major League Baseball's "Fan Cave" is celebrating with an exhibit from the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The Greenwich Village attraction is putting several Yankees artifacts on display including the catcher's mitt used by Yogi Berra during Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series, and a bat used by Yankee legend Babe Ruth to make history.
"One of the most iconic Babe Ruth artifacts and probably the best Babe Ruth artifact we've got from the World Series in the collection," said National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Chief Curator Erik Strohl.
Strohl brought the bat and other items from the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown to the MLB Fan Cave on West Fourth Street and Broadway, where a specially-selected group of super fans known as the "Cave Dwellers" watched more than 2,400 ball games this season.
"When we got this amazing space that you see here, we saw a lot of opportunity to showcase baseball at the intersection with pop culture," said Felicia Principe of Major League Baseball.
"You can't really be in a better position to watch every single game for the entire year," said "Cave Dweller" Kyle Thompson.
Nine "Cave Dwellers" started the season watching every single baseball game. That number has been whittled down to three who had to leave jobs and move to the space to be part of it, though they are paid.
"The time we devote to this, it's like what you would dream your day off to be," said "Cave Dweller" Ashley Chavez.
A number one fan will be chosen after the World Series, leaving more time for the final three to soak up the experience, and opportunities for the public to stop in for special events.
Major League Baseball says more than 300 celebrity visitors, including more than 150 current players, have visited the "Fan Cave" since it opened last year.
