Hall of Fame Classic 2019

Over Memorial Day Weekend, with the support of Commissioner Manfred and Major League Baseball, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will host Hall of Fame Classic Weekend. Each year since 2014, former major leaguers representing each of the 30 MLB teams converge in Cooperstown, along with six Hall of Fame members, for a seven-inning legends game at Cooperstown’s historic Doubleday Field, and a fundraising event. We hope you can join us!
