Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith Featured in Oct. 3 Voices of the Game event at the Museum

Museum’s Education Ambassador Visiting Cooperstown for Reunion of Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program Alumni

Ozzie Smith spent his 19-year big league career redefining the position of shortstop.

Today, Smith’s position of Education Ambassador for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has helped him define the values passed along to the alumni of the Museum’s Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development.

Smith will return to Cooperstown during the first weekend of October for a reunion of the first 15 classes of Steele interns. Smith will be featured in a Voices of the Game program at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3 in the Museum’s Grandstand Theater, as the 13-time Gold Glove Award winner will share stories from his memorable career. A question-and-answer session with the audience will also be featured in the program.

Tickets for the Voices of the Game event will go on sale exclusively to participants in the Museum’s Membership Program at 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 21. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12-and-under and can be reserved by calling 607-547-0397.

Any remaining tickets will go on sale at the Museum’s Ticket Booth at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3.

More than 90 alumni of the Museum’s Steele Internship Program are expected to attend this year’s reunion. For more information on the Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development, please visit http://baseballhall.org/education/internship-program.
