COOPERSTOWN, NY – It’s the time of year when heroes become immortals, and when legends are born.

This family event will feature a live broadcast of Game 3 of the 107 th World Series, which will be played in the American League champions’ park (time to be announced). Doors to the Hall of Fame for the World Series Gala will open one hour prior to game time.

The fun-filled evening will feature refreshments, trivia, raffles, prizes and more as fans watch the game from the Hall of Fame on the big screen in the Grandstand Theater. The World Series Gala is made possible by the generous support of Price Chopper supermarkets.
