National Baseball Hall of Fame vice president Jeff Idelson said Monday he is hoping the bat New York Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui used in becoming the first Japanese player to hit a home run in the World Series will be placed in their museum.

Idelson said he will ask Matsui to donate the bat with which he hit a three-run homer in Sunday’s game against the Florida Marlins along with the ball to the museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., on the final day of this year’s World Series.
