[The Hall of Fame] is a place of grace and class…You arrive expecting to tour baseball’s past. What you discover is your own…It is pictures of places you’ve never been and belongings of people you’ve never met. Yet you are drawn to its scuffed baseballs and gritty photographs as if they were your own. And in a way, they are.
When the crack of the bat brings a thrill to your soul, and you’re longing for the summer memories of your youth, melting the winter snows, it is time to plan a pilgrimage to the best place on Earth to fully satisfy your love of the game…the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.
