Celebrating our Veterans

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 9:00am

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates Hall of Famers’ service to their country year-round in the iconic Plaque Gallery. Nov. 7, the Hall of Fame will partner with the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs to offer all military veterans free admission to the home of baseball in Cooperstown. In honor of Veterans Day, all Veterans will be admitted to the Museum free of charge with proof of Veteran status.

The New York State Division of Veterans Affairs will have staff available at the Hall of Fame all day to inform Veterans and their families about the federal and state benefits that they have earned, and to help them file claims and appeals for those benefits.

The Hall of Fame will offer special Museum programs including:
