Re: Anybody ever done Cooperstown??
I finally made it up to Cooperstown last summer to see Barry Larkin inducted. There is more to do on induction weekend but also more people. If you really love baseball then give yourself two days to tour the Hall and take it all in. Main Street is lined with memorabilia shop and restaurants. You can spend a lot of time going into the shops just looking around. I spent four days there so did a couple other non baseball activities. The Fenimore Art Museum is worthwhile and houses a great collection of American Indian Art. The museum is named after James Fenimore Cooper who is best known for his novels, most notably The Last of the Mohicans. You can take a boat ride on Lake Otsego which is beautiful and mostly undeveloped. There you can see the Kingfisher Tower Castle.
One interesting note: I asked one of the workers at the HoF where they kept all of the memorabilia that was not on display. He said there is a huge warehouse underground where things are kept. There is even one room where, in the event of a fire, you have 30 seconds to get out before all the oxygen is sucked out of the room.
Cooperstown is a very charming, small town and worthwhile a trip there even for non baseball fans.
