(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – For fans of the game’s most historic franchise, Cooperstown remains the ultimate destination. 

Now, Yankees supporters can experience the history of the Bronx Bombers at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in August during a pair of days emblazoned with pinstripes. 

The Museum will host Yankees Family Day on two Saturdays – Aug. 10 and 24 – in August in celebration of the heroes, legends and moments throughout the amazing history of the New York Yankees. The Museum will feature guided exhibit tours, artifact spotlights, trivia contests, themed craft stations and other special opportunities throughout both days. 

The Museum will provide registrants for the Sunday, Aug. 11 BASE Race with complimentary admission on Saturday as part of the Yankees Family Day celebration.
