The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates Hall of Famers’ service to their country year-round in the iconic Plaque Gallery. From Nov. 6 through Nov. 30, 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.
On November 11th, visitors will have the opportunity to honor the military personnel and veterans by taking some time out of their day to write a letter to thank our soldiers and veterans. All letters will then be sent to Operation Gratitude. American Flags will be handed out throughout the day when visitors enter the museum.
