Doubleday Field, just adjacent to the Hall of Fame were baseball was conceived by Abner Doubleday - a career ( MG/USA) military man.
Everythings about this town is baseball, including their baseball planters or trash cans. As the season was winding down for the tourists, Jan insisted that I pose behind these two items. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!
The baseball Hall of Fame is a must see museum to the baseball greats. They also offer free admission to both active duty and retired military personnel. Nice touch. It was one block away from the Cooperstown cafe and the walk to the museum was by store fronts that were loaded with baseball collectables.
