For more than 75 years, baseball fans have made their way to Cooperstown, New York, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. This July 24 through 27, the 2015 Hall of Fame Weekend will provide one more reason to visit as the town will feature a number of activities to honor America’s favorite pastime.

On Sunday, July 26, an induction ceremony will take place to honor three pitchers who combined won nine Cy Young Awards. Steal Mariners’ Randy Johnson, Boston Red Sox’s Pedro Martinez, and Atlanta Braves’ John Smoltz, along with Major League Baseball’s member of the 3,000 Hit Club, Craig Biggio of the Houston Astros, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at Clark Sports Center at 1:30 p.m.

More than 50 Hall of Famers are expected to return for the weekend to honor the Class of 2015 at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and highlights of the weekend will include a Parade of Legends down Main Street, as well as a Legends of the Game Roundtable discussion with the new class of inductees. On July 24, PLAY Ball with Ozzie Smith and other past Hall of Famers will be a three-hour interaction beginning with a special breakfast and two hours on the field. The event includes personalized instruction, photos and special mementos.
