Day 41: Cooperstown - Birthplace of Baseball

Today was spent in Cooperstown, New York, where the legend/myth says baseball began in 1839. We mostly spent the day at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. We also had lunch at a little basement restaurant in town. Before heading back to camp we browsed some souvenir shops.

Browsing the shops was worthwhile as we are now back up-to-date with team stickers on the car, but at the same time kind of disappointing. They have a lot of cool baseball memorabilia with my favorite being the baseball cards, but pretty much nothing Nationals related. One shop did have some Ryan Zimmermann cards, but just plain rookie type ones. I really wanted one of the game used piece of jersey or bat type ones, but there was no player worthwhile in my opinion. Sure there were some well-known guys, but no Nats. Anyways, it was still fun looking at all the cards.

We are now back at camp and I do not have the patience for the slow Internet here, but I have plenty of posts ready to cut and paste to add photos to and post. I hope I get good Internet tomorrow on the road. At least we should get good Internet tomorrow night, as we are staying in a hotel outside New York City.
