Despite all the disappointments from the pitcher's mound, Charlie Brown and his Peanuts' ball team are headed to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

An exhibit titled "You're In the Hall of Fame, Charlie Brown" will open May 20 and run through the remainder of the year, Hall of Fame officials said Friday.

Charles Schulz, who died in February, created nearly 18,000 Peanuts strips over the past 50 years and almost 10 percent focused on baseball.

"I could draw baseball strips every day," Schulz said in December. "Baseball is ideal because little kids do play it at that age, and they aren't very good. But they do suffer at it."

The exhibit will include original strips, artwork and artifacts.
