. It had his last base hit ball. It was in the final game of his career. We went in the bullpen theater at noon for a trivia thing called “So You Think You Know Baseball”. I got a qualifying answer right and I picked Darren to come along with me. It was almost the same as who wants to be a millionaire but you won a Hall of Fame membership program instead of 1 million dollars. There were nine innings. Darren and I got into the seventh inning before we got a question wrong. There was so much other stuff that I could write about but I will spare you. We will all write a little on our last day of the trip. We're coming home tomorrow!!!!
(Kevin) The Hall of Fame was great! The kids were in heaven there and we could have stayed a couple days. Tom went a little crazy with the photographs. Thank goodness we don't have to buy and develop film. We spent a ton of money on souvenirs. We hit the road mid afternoon for our final leg of the trip - driving home. We got a few hours of driving behind us and found a campground in western Mass. The final long drive tomorrow.
209 miles, avg. speed 47.9 mph, travel time 4:20, stopped time 0:34, total miles for trip 8,373
(Tom) Our final destination before heading home was the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. We took the trolley from our trolley lot to the Hall of Fame. The building looked small from the outside but once you got in it, it was huge!! The first place we went was the recommended first place to go, the Cooperstown Room. I had my camera so I took a lot of pictures. In the Cooperstown Room, it showed the beginning of baseball and the beginning of the Hall of Fame. I found out that the creator of baseball is Abner Doubleday. After that room, we watched a quick movie called "The Baseball Experience" and it showed me really how I thought about baseball. I was only thinking about baseball right now. I should be thinking back and asking, “When was the last double perfect game?” or questions similar to that. The whole building is really hard to explain. In a room that we went into, there were baseballs and bats from that players 3000th hit or 400th home run. One of the rooms even had the jersey “Yaz” wore in the last game of his career
