Day 15: Hall of Fame(s)

Day 15: Cooperstown -- The Baseball Hall of Fame (Basketball Too)

We woke up this morning in Springfield, Massachusetts, home of the Basketball Hall of Fame, so we had to drop in.

My shoe on top of the shoe print of ShaQ.

Then off to Cooperstown (been wanting to visit since the 50s)

Main Street in Cooperstown looks like Bedford Falls (It's a Wonderful Life), except most of the stores sell baseball momentos.

After the Hall of Fame visit, Jeannie drove 200 miles to Buffalo.  Tomorrow we start with Niagara Falls and then head to Cleveland for a game Tuesday night.
