Baseball Hall of Fame
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Did you ever collect baseball cards? Did you ever catch a baseball that was hit into the stands? Do you still have your old baseball glove? Or a special jersey? Or the socks that you wore when your team won a big game?
 
2     If you like baseball, you will love the Baseball Hall of Fame. Its full name is the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. It is in Cooperstown, New York, and it has all kinds of great baseball things.
 
3     Here are some of the things you will see if you ever visit the Hall of Fame. There is an exhibit of World Series Heroes. There is one showing 150 years of baseball uniforms. You can see the bat Sammy Sosa used to hit his 500th home run. There are other Sosa treasures too. These include one of his jerseys, a batting helmet, a wrist band, batting gloves, and a pair of his spikes. You can see the bat that Shawn Green of the Dodgers used to hit four home runs in one game.
 
4     There are items used in the World Series games. From the 2002 World Series, you can see a cap, spikes, and a bat. The cap was worn by the youngest pitcher in a World Series game. The spikes belonged to the Angels leadoff hitter. The bat was used by the first Japanese born player in a World Series game.
 
5     The Hall of Fame has a website where you can find lots of great baseball facts. You can find out to whom the cap, the spikes, and the bat belonged. You can also go to the site to find out how a player gets elected to the Hall of Fame.
