CLEVELAND -- A flood at the Baseball Heritage & Broadcast Museum in the Colonial Arcade destroyed part of Cleveland's history a week ago.

A pipe burst in the ceiling of the museum and went unnoticed for several days, creating 4-8 inches of water on the basement floor.

The flooding was mostly in the broadcast portion of the museum and much of the memorabilia is now damaged or lost.

Jim Davison, the museum's curator, said this isn't the first time that a pipe broke in the museum, causing this issue. Now insurance adjusters are looking at how much damage was done to the priceless materials.

Davison tells Channel 3 the museum is exploring the possibility of moving the remaining collection.

He is asking parties that are interested to call 216.832.9564.
