The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York is America.s shrine to its national past time the game of baseball. From its beginning in the game of townball all the way to the modern game this museum covers all of the key events and human interest stories of this great sport.
As a Boston Red Sox fan the team is well represented from the early world series wins with Babe Ruth to the Ted Williams era all the way to the 21st century success of the team.
There are two areas of interest in the museum; the memorial hall that has all of the plaques for the hall of famers and the historical sections of the museum. Exhibits in the museum cover iconic ballparks, a hall of records, a history of Negro League baseball, exhibits for each team and separate rooms for greats such as Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron. A must see for any Red Sox fan is Curt Schilling’s “bloody sock.”
The town of Cooperstown outside of the Hall of Fame is a nice vacation spot in and of itself. Lake Otsego has some nice recreational opportunities and restaurants right on the lakeside.
