Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Weekend

Join Simply A Fan on this epic adventure to the mecca of baseball history for the 2022 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Weekend! This long weekend four day, three night excursion will give you parts of four days to tour the Hall of Fame, walk the Main Street in Cooperstown, meet current Hall of Famers for pictures and autographs (paid experiences) and more, see schedule below.

This year’s inductees from the veterans committee include Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat, Minnie Minoso, Tony Olivia and Bud Fowler. This year’s inductee from the writer’s ballot is Red Sox legend David Ortiz!

Our lodging will be in Albany, 90 minutes away at the Hampton Inn & Suites. The reason for the distance is due to the extremely limited accommodations in the tiny village of Cooperstown (pop. 2000) and very high costs for nearby Air BnB. Transportation will be in a passenger van (yet not filled to capacity).

Spots for this adventure are extremely limited to the first 10 people who register and pay. See below for trip schedule, package cost details and more. Although Simply A Fan is based out of Nashville (TN) and a bulk of our group will be departing from there, you do not have to be from Nashville to be part of this trip.
