"Cooperstown Corner"
Part of a New Exhibit at the Royals Hall of Fame

Baseball has a rich history earning its designation as America's National Pastime. No place on earth celebrates or is more synonymous with the game than the village of Cooperstown, New York - home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Now a small portion of that Cooperstown heritage has come to Kansas City.

Open now with the completed space available beginning Friday July 16, 2010, on its one year anniversary, the Royals Hall of Fame is proud to unveil a new group of exhibits highlighted by 'Cooperstown Corner' located inside the Royals Hall of Fame building. 'Cooperstown Corner' includes artifacts from the National Baseball Hall of Fame's permanent collection loaned to us here in Kansas City. As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Royals 1985 World Championship, Cooperstown has put together a unique group of items from World Series play dating all the way back to the first fall classic in 1903.

The mission of the National Baseball Hall of Fame is to foster an appreciation of the historical development of Baseball and its impact on our national culture by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting its collections for a global audience, as well as honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the game. The Royals Hall of Fame is proud to a strong partner is that effort here in Kansas City.
