Foursquare Tips

  • This is where the game's immortals are enshrined. The heart of the museum is the Hall of Fame gallery. The gallery has a plaque for each of the players who have been elected to the hall.
  • The Plaque Gallery on the first floor is awesome, but MAKE SURE you spend time in the Records Room on Floor 3. It has a case with World Series rings all the way back to the 1900s.
  • Cooperstown is a great little town that's all about baseball, and it comes alive during induction weekend. The event includes an exhibition game and the free induction ceremony.
  • On September 22, 1947, TIME payed homage to baseball star Jackie Robinson with this cover, which marked his debut season with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
  • Yep, there are Marines in the Hall of Fame. Check out the plaques of Rod Carew and Roberto Clemente to learn more about these Marines and baseball legends.

  • I would start on the second floor and work your way down!
  • Red Sox fan? Check out some great memorabilia: Fisk's bat from Game 6, Williams' hitting grid, Yaz's 6-Shooter. There's a lot here, so take your time.
