COOPERSTOWN, NY – The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s new Cooperstown Conversations podcast is a hit, and the latest installment features a look at the home of some of baseball’s most memorable hitters: Boston’s Fenway Park.

The May episode of Cooperstown Conversations debuted last week in the Apple iTunes store and at the Hall of Fame podcast page. The May podcast celebrates Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary and features interviews with Hall of Famer’s Bobby Doerr and Carlton Fisk.

Fisk, elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000, gives listeners a behind-the-scenes look at his legendary home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. The podcast also features a look at the Museum’s new exhibit FENtennial: Fenway Park’s First 100 Years, as well as an interview with Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson, a Massachusetts native who grew up in the shadows of Fenway Park.

A new version of the Cooperstown Conversations podcast debuts during the first week of each month. Previous episodes featured tributes to women in baseball and an interview with new Hall of Famer Barry Larkin.
