Introduction

Baseball is America's favorite sport and commonly referred to as the nations national pastime. It was invented by Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, N.Y. in the late 1800's and has been a common sports topic for the media from books to film to music and radio.

Baseball has a rich history of players and stories of fame, fortune, heartbreak, despair, anticipation, and of victory and defeat. The statistics and records of each players performance has been cataloged in the Baseball Hall of Fame which is located in Cooperstown and is the official library and curator of Major League Baseball history and it's artifacts.

The museum provides a look and tribute to the sports history and it's progress in the beginning through the addition of the Negro Leagues, through modern day games, moments, and stories.
