COOPERSTOWN, NY – The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum offers a wide variety of educational programs and special events throughout the year. But in the summer, the Museum’s daily programming schedule begins – providing visitors with even more opportunities for baseball fun.

This year’s schedule brings back some old favorites as well as a few new programs. All programs are included with the purchase of a Museum ticket.

The daily summer schedule, which runs today through Aug. 6, is as follows:
