Experience History at the Museum During Hall of Fame Weekend 2014, July 25-28

Class of 2014 Induction Highlights Celebration of the National Pastime in Cooperstown

July 18, 2014

(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – The annual celebration of baseball’s best weekend will feature the induction of the historic Class of 2014 in Cooperstown.

History, however, is made – and preserved – every day at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and the iconic home of baseball is set to welcome thousands of fans with new exhibits and classic stories of the National Pastime.

The Museum features more than 60,000 square feet of state-of-the-art exhibits, including Babe Ruth: His Life and Legend, a tribute to the Bambino which debuted in June. Today’s Game features the Museum’s latest acquisitions from the 2014 season, including spikes worn by the Angels’ Albert Pujols when he hit his 500th career home run on April 22 and caps worn by the Yankees’ Derek Jeter and the Angels’ Mike Trout during the 2014 All-Star Game.

From the oak-lined walls of the Plaque Gallery to the Diamond Mines exhibit that honors the tireless work of baseball scouts, the Museum captures the history of baseball and preserves the timeless story of our national game.

The Museum is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily through Labor Day, with special hours during Saturday and Sunday of Hall of Fame Weekend:
