Dedicated to the career and life of former National League Most Valuable Player and Los Angeles Dodgers star Maury Wills. The museum opened on June 2, 2001, and is located on the ground floor of Newman Outdoor Field. Maury started his association with the Hawks in their inaugural year (1996) as a coach and instructor. Starting in 1998, Maury Wills joined Jack Michaels in the radio booth as the "Voices of the RedHawks." He also runs a day camp for Fargo area youth known as the Maury Wills Knothole Gang.

Maury achieved fame when he broke Ty Cobb's season record for stolen bases (97) on Sept. 23, 1962. Later that season he became the first player to steal more than 100 bases. He stole 585 bases during his MLB career.

A few of his claims to fame accomplishments are:
 - The first person to steal more than 100 bases in a season, with 104 in 1962
 - The 1961 & 1962 winner of the Gold Glove Award
 - Stolen base leader 1960-1965
 - The 1962 National League Most Valuable Player

When you go to a RedHawks game be sure to stop in and browse through the museum, relive a little history and a wonderful story.
