  Double Day Field, Cooperstown, NY
by ladyanne

This is a view of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Double Day Park where we attended the 2005 Hall of Fame Game with the World Series winners the RED SOX playing against the DETROIT Tigers, strange enough the Tigers won,.....but the highlight of the day was the "Homerun Derby" in which several players from each team are given a chance to hit 10 balls each for a homerun out of the park.....well needless to say "Big Pappa" Dave Ortiz hit a many and set the record. Several flew straight over our heads. One ball which everyone in my area tried to catch and one actually hit my husbands glove only to be fooled because a net was around it swooped by a young fellow behind us. "Spitting mad" we were until, we started receivng a "United Press" Photo of it from several different newspapers all over the US. So it was worth the loss of the ball. I think!!!!!
