Scenes from the Baseball Hall of Fame – Photophile Musings

These photos were taken at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, USA during August 2021.

If you love baseball, you’ll love the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, USA. The museum was established in 1936 by the baseball commissioner at the time, Kenesaw Mountain Landis, as a place to honor baseball’s greatest players, coaches, and other members of the sport’s community who were pivotal in its development and ongoing popularity. In 2022, the Hall of Fame has more than 40,000 items in its collection which can be found inside this amazing building that looks like something straight out of the Civil War era. The Hall also even has some interactive learning experiences.

While there I took a few pictures of the exhibits that interested me most. Right at the beginning of the Hall of Fame journey, there’s a bull with a baseball glove on each horn, which is probably the most amusing thing in the entire museum. The rest of the photos I took had to deal with baseball cards and memorabilia, as those are right up my alley.

My wife Tom Slatin took a ton of photos, too, which are in the gallery below.

Have you ever been to the Baseball Hall of Fame? If so, what were your favorite exhibits?
