COOPERSTOWN, NY – The ghosts of baseball's past live year-round at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown.

But on the most haunted day of the year, children will have a chance to experience the game's history and share in the fun with a Halloween trick or treat adventure.

Children in costume and their adult parents/guardians will be admitted free to the Hall of Fame from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31, as part of the Hall of Fame's Halloween celebration. Guests will be led on a trick or treat trip through the Museum. Treats will be provided through support of Price Chopper Supermarkets.
