COOPERSTOWN, NY – The poinsettias are blooming and the holiday decorations are on display in the legendary Hall of Fame Plaque Gallery, which means the time is near for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's annual Holiday Celebration.

The Hall of Fame will host its Holiday Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 11. A special holiday concert will be held in the Hall of Fame Plaque Gallery, featuring the Pathfinder Village Hand Bell Choir at 2 p.m. and the SUNY Oneonta Hooked on Tonics A Cappella group at 3 p.m.

The Museum's updated Autumn Glory exhibit will also be open. The exhibit features more than a dozen artifacts from the 2010 Major League Baseball postseason, including World Series MVP Edgar Renteria's bat from Game 5 of the Fall Classic and Tim Lincecum's Giants jersey from Game 5.

In the spirit of the holidays, all Museum visitors receive free admission all day on Dec. 11 with the donation of at least two non-perishable food items. All donations support the Cooperstown Food Bank and Opportunities for Otsego.
