Welcome To Cooperstown


Cooperstown, home of legend, heroes and the national sport, Baseball.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame is located on Main Street in the pastoral village of Cooperstown in New York State and was founded in 1939.

The museum is one of the most popular and recognizable educational institutions in the States. Approxiamately 350,000 people visit the museum each year.

But why Cooperstown?

In 1904 the Mills Commission was appointed to research the origins of the game after an article by Henri Chadwick, a famous baseball writer claimed it originated from the English game of rounders.

After three years of deliberation and a deluge of correspondence including the testimony of Abner Graves and Abner Doubleday who both attended school together in Cooperstown, it was concluded that "the first scheme for playing baseball, according to the best evidence obtainable to date, was devised by Abner Doubleday at Cooperstown, NY in 1839."

The discovery, in 1934, of an old baseball in a dust covered trunk in an old farmhouse three miles from Cooperstown seemed to back-up the commissions findings.

The ball, which became known as the "Doubleday Baseball" was later purchased for $5 by Stephen C Clark a Cooperstown resident and philanthropist.

It was Clark he thought of displaying the ball, along with other baseball memorabilia he could find in the Village Club.

Such was the success and attraction of the exhibit that Clark, along with the help of Alexandra Cleland tried to establish a National Baseball museum.

Ford Frick, president of the National League was especially enthusiastic who in turn got the backing of Kenesaw Mountain Landis, Baseball's first Commissioner and William Harridge, president of the American League.

With their backing, and as word of their museum spread donations and contributions of historical and significant baseball memorabilia began to flood in.

Frick proposed the idea of a national "Hall of Fame" being established to pay homage to the games legends and with the help of the Baseball Writers Association of America a list of five names was elected to be honoured in 1936.

The first five chosen to be so honoured were Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and Walter Johnson.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame was officially opened on June 12, 1939 in a dedication ceremony. Up to this time 25b players had been elected to the Hall of Fame and the 11 who were still alive attended the ceremony which were also part of the centenary celebrations.

Over the intervening years the Museum has undergone many changes including the addition of the Hall of Fame Gallery in 1958, and a library in 1968, which was renovated in 1994.

Each year the Baseball Hall of Fame has more than 300 educational events that take place each year as well as distant learning programmes, on hour to half day online field trips, and video conferencing that has been enjoyed by more than 60 million students nationwide.

Then of course there's the Hall of Fame weekend featuring the Induction Ceremony for newly elected Hall of Famers and the Hall of Fame Game that is held annually at Doubleday Field between to major league teams in an exhibition game.
