Cooperstown, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
With thousands of baseball fans in attendance and a worldwide audience watching on television and the Internet, the National Baseball Hall of Fame welcomed six new members on Sunday. The weather forecast did not look good leading up to the 2014 Hall of Fame induction Ceremony; sunshine would eventually shine down on not only the crowd of returning Hall of Famers, but also the approximately 48, 000 die-hard baseball fans in the open field in front of the stage at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, NY. The enthusiastic crowd, holding up signs and pennants, and decked out in the jerseys of their heroes, is estimated to be the third largest ever to attend on induction; Sports Travel and Tours hosted nearly 1,000 of the fans in attendance.
The fan’s travel packages included hotel accommodations, transportation, commemorative coins and cards, admission to “The Hall”, and events throughout the weekend including books signings and talks from noted Baseball Historian, Dan Schlossberg and retired Major League (AL) umpire, Al Clark. VIP options even include upgraded hotel and seating in the same reserved area with the Enshrinees’ friends and family for the Ceremony.
“In this economy, customers need to be selective when it comes to their money and vacation choices, and these travel packages afford baseball fans the best possible experience at a competitive price,” says Jay Smith, President of Sports Travel and Tours. “Our continued partnership with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum offers fans the chance to visit Cooperstown—for Induction Weekend, or any time throughout the year with added benefits”.
And with the 2014 Hall of Fame Induction Weekend over, Sports Travel and Tours already has dozens of deposits for next year’s trip. Hall of Fame Weekend 2015 will take place July 24-26, with the Induction Ceremony scheduled for July 26.
