Wade Boggs, Ryne Sandberg counting down the days until HOF induction

Parking and Transportation — Parking near the Hall of Fame is limited, and many of the spaces in the village are two-hour parking spots. Allow yourself extra time (approximately 30 minutes) to get a parking space in the village for your visit to the museum. Please note that during peak times (Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend, for example), parking is very limited, and you may wish to consider public transportation.

The Cooperstown trolley provides transit to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Doubleday Field from three different locations:

•     The Blue Lot on Route 28, south of Cooperstown;

•     The Red Lot on Route 28 (Glen Avenue) at Maple Street;

•     The Yellow Lot on Route 80 at the upper parking lot of the Fenimore Art Museum.

All-day trolley passes are available for $2 for adults and for $1 for children 12 and under. The trolley operates from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day.

Shopping  — The Hall of Fame and Museum contains a 4,000-square foot museum store operated by the Hall of Fame. The store carries official museum merchandise, collectibles, and souvenirs, and is open during regular museum hours. The museum store accepts VISA, Mastercard and American Express, as well as money orders. The Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit educational institution, and sales in the museum store help support the museum’s mission.

Induction Ceremony — The Induction Ceremony is held at the Clark Sports Center, located less than two miles from the Hall of Fame, at 124 Susquehanna Avenue. The ceremony is held outdoors, weather permitting. The ceremony is free of charge and there is general seating available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We recommend that you arrive early at the Clark Sports Center to get a location that suits your needs. Many visitors bring lawn chairs and blankets to stake out their spots. The Clark Sports Center does not offer parking the day of the ceremony, so you will want to allow enough time to either walk, bike, or take one of the many buses that shuttle fans to the site.

•      Dates for 2005 Hall of Fame Weekend are July 29 to August 1.

•      The ceremony will be Sunday, July 31, 2005. Admission to the Induction Ceremony is free and a ticket is not  required.

•     This year, Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg will be inducted, while broadcaster Jerry Coleman (Ford C. Frick Award) and  writer Peter Gammons (J.G. Taylor Spink Award) will be honored.

Other Things To Do — Check out the Cooperstown GetAway web site for information on other great attractions in the Cooperstown area. The Fenimore  Art Museum, Farmer’s Museum,  and Glimmerglass Opera, are  an example of three wonderful attractions also located in Cooperstown. The beautiful and historical Otesaga  Resort and Hotel is located on the shores of Lake Otsego, just a  short walk from the Hall of Fame and downtown.

Pack Accordingly — Many visitors will not make their way through the museum in one day, so be sure to pack comfortable shoes and clothing, depending on how in-depth your museum experience will be.
