The Museum

First and foremost, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is a place to honor the game. When the Museum was dedicated on June 12, 1939 in Cooperstown, N.Y., the Hall of Fame officially became the spiritual home of baseball by serving as its cornerstone and housing the stories honoring the greats of baseball's past.

Doubleday Field

Constructed in 1920 by the village of Cooperstown to honor Abner Doubleday this ballpark is a historic gem that still hosts games today. In 1939 thanks to the WPA program, concrete and steel structures were built to modernize the stadium with a capacity of almost 10,000. It is the annual site of the Hall of Fame Classic game on Memorial Day weekend where legendary players and Hall of Fame members take the field for a legends game.
