The baseball artifacts on the ground floor were hardest hit, and 10 inches of water got through to the Cleveland radio-related items on the lower floor. Archivist Jim Davison says photos, baseball uniforms and even a replica newsroom were among the casualties. But lots of banners, promotional items and vintage equipment were saved. The salvageable pieces are being boxed up this week, but Davison says the Arcade space is not repairable and the museum is looking for a new home. The Baseball Heritage Museum opened in 1999, and added the Broadcasting section in 2008.
