Today is a special day in Baseball

Sunday, July 21, 2019

Today is the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in Cooperstown, NY. My home town is only about an hour away so we used to go for day trips a lot. It's a tiny town but for this years induction, they said about 80,000 people will be there and i can't even begin to imagine the crowd and the heat will be around 98F.

This years inductees are: Mariano Rivera, Edgar Martinez, Mike Mussina, Lee Smith, Harold Baines and the late Roy Halladay, so no wonder Cooperstown is packed.

I can foresee a road trip in our families future to see Mariano's enshrined collection. Congratulations to all new inductees!

If people can ramble on about their dogs getting groomed, I can ramble on about baseball!

    We went the Baseball Hall of Fame many years ago. Fantastic displays and the wonderful people in Cooperstown make sure you feel welcome. Would love to go again. Being a die hard Blue Jay fan I would love to see the Roberto Alomar and the Roy HalladayCollections

    We went to the Baseball Hall of Fame was I was about 10 years old - big trip from Rhode Island to Niagra Falls with my cousin who was like the older brother I never had (he was 13 and an avid baseball fan!) and on the way home we stopped in Cooperstown. I don't remember it much (it was almost 50 years ago!) but I do remember my cousin was over the top loving it!

    P.S. You can ramble about anything you want to, this is YOUR blog after all. For me, this brought back some family memories when my parents and his parents would take us to baseball games (RedSox) in the summer and on trips...good times! Thanks for sharing and making me smile!
