School’s Out, but Learning and Fun Continue All Week at Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown

Museum’s New ‘FENtennial’ Exhibit Celebrates the Majesty of Boston’s Iconic Ball Yard

April 16, 2012

COOPERSTOWN, NY – School’s out this week in Massachusetts, but the learning – and fun – continues for students and baseball fans of all ages just down the road at the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Boston baseball fans can experience the history and majesty of Hall of Fame, including the Museum’s newest exhibit: FENtennial: Fenway Park’s First 100 Years. The exhibit ushers in a year-long celebration of Boston’s Fenway Park and is included with regular Museum admission.

FENtennial features artifacts like Carl Yastrzemski’s bat from his 3,000th hit, Ted Williams’ 1960 home jersey and Carlton Fisk’s Game 6 bat from the 1975 World Series – which is on exhibit for the first time anywhere. As part of the exhibit, fans will be able to share their memories of Fenway Park at the Museum in Cooperstown or at baseballhall.org – with the responses added to the Hall of Fame’s archive.

Visitors to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum with a Fenway Park ticket stub from the 2012 season will receive a free copy of the Hall of Fame’s Memories and Dreams Salute to Fenway Park, a 48-page color commemorative magazine at Cooperstown’s look at 100 years of Boston’s sacred ground. Limit one copy per ticket stub and while supplies last. The centennial commemorative includes original insight from Hall of Fame members about their experiences at Fenway Park, as well as historical photographs, insightful commentary and unique artifacts from the Museum’s collections.
