The National Baseball Hall of Fame

Cooperstown, NY

The Impossible Dream Artifacts from the 1967 season, focusing on Triple Crown winner Carl Yastrzemski and owner Tom Yawkey.

From there, we entered the section on ballparks. There was a Fenway Park display, and a "Huntington Avenue" sign over one of the doorways. There was also a large display on Ebbetts Field in Brooklyn, including part of a wall, some seats, some infield dirt, and a "Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn" button. One of the interesting aspects of the museum is that seats and benches from old ballparks are located throughout the hallways wherever seating is needed. A row of seats from Philadelphia's Connie Mack Stadium and a dugout bench from Cleveland were there, among others.

For some reason, the old sign on the right below seemed like it applied to Red Sox fans!
