May 8, 2009, Cooperstown, NY - Ah, yes. The Village of Cooperstown. An incredible contrast to the hustle and bustle of New York City. Cooperstown is on a completely different pace - relaxed, historic, reflective. And one that our travelers always enjoy on our baseball vacation packages Baseball Sayingsafter leaving a major U.S. city.

This trip was no different. We arrived at the Inn around 11AM and then headed over to the Hall of Fame. This time of year the Hall closes at 5PM so we wanted to give everyone as much time there as we could. There's always so much to see there that it can be information overload. I've been through the Hall many times and always find something new that I haven't seen before.

One of the things I always enjoy reading are the quotes from folks around the game. This might be hard to read in a photo but it's funny to see how many phrases we use in everyday life that can be attributed to baseball - let's get in in the ballpark, step up to the plate, and we're in the big league now.

Another quote that I loved is in the Hank Aaron exhibit. Pitcher Curt Simmons is quoted as saying, "Trying to throw a fastball by Henry Aaron is like trying to sneak a sunrise past a rooster." How awesome is that!
