The Breitbard Hall of Fame which has been housed for many years in the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park is on the move.

Construction will begin shortly on the modifications to the Western Metal Building. It sounds like the bulk of the museum will be located on the main concourse areas of the Western Metal Building.
