Hall of Fame Classic


Friday, May 24 – Monday, May 27

The Hall of Fame Classic +
Night at the Museum

This is a four day, three night to the best quaint village in the nation – Cooperstown, New York. This small town of less than 2,000 residents is home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The streets of Cooperstown are museum-esque all in themselves with baseball shops galore of memorabilia, artifacts, apparel and more.

We will fly into nearby Albany, a brief 90 minute drive to Cooperstown. With your Hall of Fame membership pass, your admission to the Hall of Fame gives you unlimited entry each day of our trip. On Saturday we will go to the Hall of Fame Classic at historic Doubleday Field. That evening we will have special access to tour the Hall of Fame during the “Night at the Museum” event where you will be walking the hallowed halls with Hall of Famers themselves!

The Hall of Fame Classic is a seven inning game played between legends at historic DoubleDay Field in the middle of the Cooperstown village. It brings together several hall of famers and other former players representing all 30 teams. Prior to the 1:05 first pitch, there will be a Homerun Contest at noon. 

Hall of Famers who are scheduled to appear as coaches for the Classic and  include Bert Blyleven, Rollie Fingers, Goose Gossage, Trevor Hoffman, Tim Raines and Alan Trammell. 

Some of the former players committed to appear for the Classic include: Cory Snyder (Indians), Todd Zeile (Mets), Steve Sax (Dodgers), Joe Nathan (Twins), Corey Hart (Brewers), Charles Johnson (Marlins), Orlando Hudson (Blue Jays), Michael Barrett (Nationals).

The Hall of Fame will reprise its Night at the Museum program, now in its seventh season. Hall of Fame legends and former players will greet fans throughout the Museum on Saturday evening beginning at 6 p.m. Legends participants will canvass the Museum during the course of a two-hour event that will bring the Museum to life with special programs and interactions. While the Night at the Museum program is not an autograph session, fans should remember to bring their camera to capture their special memories. *As taken from the Hall of Fame website.
