COOPERSTOWN, NY – Summer in Cooperstown means plenty of action at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. And with thousands of visitors experiencing the Museum every day, the Hall of Fame's KeyBank Summer Programming Series is ensuring fans have a daily chance to see the history of baseball up close.

The Hall of Fame's KeyBank Summer Programming initiative will educate and entertain Museum visitors throughout the summer through Labor Day with daily offerings – all free with Museum admission. Hall of Fame staff members present the programs, which range in subject from baseball science and history to ballparks and media.

Every day, a new story about the game's history is presented through the KeyBank Summer Programming Series.

"Thanks to KeyBank's support, the Museum's daily programming offerings will remain diverse and vibrant – and available daily to Hall of Fame visitors," said Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson. "KeyBank's commitment to this programming means fans will be enlightened and entertained throughout the summer months in Cooperstown."

The Hall of Fame offers a wide variety of educational programs through the Museum's daily programming schedule, which runs throughout the summer. Individual programs, most of which are held on a daily basis, include:

  • Baseball Coast to Coast, a virtual tour of ballparks past and present in an interactive journey across America in the Hall of Fame's Sacred Ground Exhibit.
  • Connect with Louisville Slugger (Tuesdays only), where fans learn how a Louisville Slugger is made as we connect live with the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory for a virtual tour of the factory and a lesson in bat making.
  • Science on the Sandlot, where visitors learn the science of hitting and the secret of the sweet spot in this interactive and hands-on program in our Education Gallery.
  • So You Think You Know Baseball? gives visitors the chance to test their trivia knowledge as the Hall of Fame team tries to stump three sets of contestants each day in the Bullpen Theater.
