The next best thing to visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame is participating in a videoconference. The award-winning EBBETS Field Trip Series (Electronically Bringing Baseball Education To Students) transports the wonders of Cooperstown to your very own classroom. Baseball is used as the backdrop to help your students discover objectives in diverse topics like mathematics, geography, civil rights history, women's history, economics and more!
Prior to scheduling a videoconference with the Baseball Hall of Fame please take some time to review our curriculum offerings. Videoconference programs last approximately one hour (but can be lengthened or shortened based on the needs of the class), and include a virtual tour of the Hall of Fame, and an interactive discussion and/or activity designed to reinforce the key concepts of the selected topic. The program topic must be selected at the time of registration, so please make this decision prior to booking!
