What a thrill it was to visit Cooperstown, NY and the Baseball Hall of Fame.  It was my first trip to Cooperstown and I went with my wife and my daughter, her husband, and their three children.  Cooperstown is truly a beautiful city and undoubtedly the homeland of baseball.  We spent two days touring the Hall of Fame.  We had the unique opportunity to go into the basement where some of the Hall's most precious items are held.  We got the chance to see and hold Ted Williams' bat that he hit a homerun with in his final at bat.  Ted Williams is my grandson, Connor's favorite player, so that was a thrill I know he will never forget.  We also saw and held one of Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle's bat.  The Hall is filled with unique and historic baseball artifacts, and being a baseball fanatic, I loved every minute of it!  We also toured Double Day field, the first baseball field.  Sharing my experience of the Hall of Fame with my grandkids was so special for me and my wife.  I recommend visiting the Hall of Fame to any sports fan!
