Going Mobile: Hall of Fame Launches New Mobile Apps Initiative
Trivia Application for Apple and Android Devices Now Available, with More Apps Set to Debut Later This Year
COOPERSTOWN, NY – Baseball fans can now have Cooperstown in the palm of their hand, thanks to new mobile applications for Apple and Android devices available from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Through a new licensing relationship with Celebrity Apps of Pleasanton, Calif., the Museum has launched its first mobile device application: “Baseball Hall of Fame Trivia.” The 90-seconds per round game covers all aspects of baseball history and allows users to post their scores to a leaderboard via Facebook.
The Baseball Hall of Fame Trivia app is available through iTunes for Apple mobile devices and Google Play for Android at a cost of $1.99.
Users will also have the option of purchasing additional trivia games based on the Hall of Fame’s new FENtennial exhibit which celebrates the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, as well as team specific trivia games. More Hall of Fame apps are scheduled to launch throughout the year featuring biographies of Hall of Fame members, artifacts from the Museum’s collection, and stories of baseball records. Licensing revenue from sales of the mobile apps will help support the Museum’s not-for-profit educational mission to preserve baseball history.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is open seven days a week year round, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. The Museum observes summer hours of 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. from Memorial Day Weekend until the day before Labor Day.
