This morning's adventure took us to Cooperstown, home of the
Baseball Hall of Fame.
We were directed first to a
short movie about the history of baseball and what it takes to make it to the hall of fame.
Afterwards, we started our self-guided tour. We saw
famous signatures that went with
We found one of our favorite hall of famer's
from our home state...that would be Nolan Ryan, pitcher for the Texas Rangers.
We saw lots of
championship rings and
a wall full of signed baseballs representing perfect pitched games.
Then there was this
guy...wonder what position he plays? And, then...
Andrew and Lauren watched the famous
Abbott and Costello in "Who's On First?"
Gosh, we even watched as though we had never seen it.
Next stop on the tour...
the Hall of Fame...where we saw
wall of players who over the years since 1936 have earned the honor to be a part of baseball history.
We even saw the
blank wall were on July 25, 2010,
these three men will be added to the already long list of great baseball players.
Congratulations to all of them!
After our tour, we stopped at
All American Sidewalk Cafe for lunch before we
walked the streets of Cooperstown shopping in all the stores. And, for some reason all
the shops and
restaurants have a baseball theme. I can't imagine why.
What a great time in Cooperstown...certainly there was enough
apple pie to make it a real
All American Day!
