Who is your favorite Baseball Hall of Fame player?
Visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's Hall of Fame Gallery is one of our favorite Cooperstown travel experiences. The plaques of the 286 Hall of Fame members line the solid, stately oak walls with a kind of eloquence and pride that will give you goosebumps.  It's very easy to spend hours here reading the Hall of Famers' accomplishments. Add some educational, informative, entertaining and often interactive exhibits in the Museum and you have a fun-filled day in the heart of the Village of Cooperstown!

Just below is a list of the Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees. At the end of the list, there's a form where you can write about your favorite Baseball Hall of Fame player to be possibly published on!
