Induction Ceremony

The Induction Ceremony is the highlight of the Cooperstown Hall of Fame weekend. Baseball fans get to see first-hand the legends of baseball accept their nomination into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The ceremony is free to attend and is recommended you arrive early to claim your spot on the lawn at the Clark Sports Center.  There is no parking at the Sports Center, so you will need to park within Cooperstown and walk to the ceremony. The walk is about one mile from the Baseball Hall of Fame and 0.9 miles from The Inn at Cooperstown. Our ideal location in Cooperstown makes us a great choice when choosing your accommodations for the Hall of Fame weekend.
