A photo recap of Beautiful Cooperstown and a few of the Game's Treasures
In Cooperstown for the first time, on a beautiful early-Fall weekend, I was able to get a firsthand look at gloves and mitts worn by many of the game's greats.
Searching books and online just doesn't compare to seeing items in person, especially when I'm looking to accurately depict uniforms and shoes, etc.
Also, being able to know what glove a player used helps me to more accurately know which type I should look for when it comes time to portray that player on a glove.
While at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, I also had the good fortune to also meet a group of new friends, Roberto Clemente enthusiasts from around the country gathering for an event featuring former Mets' pitcher and Rookie of the Year, Jon Matlack.
Will look forward to future trips to Cooperstown and researching the game!
