New Jersey teen baseball HOF's 16 millionth visitor

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A 13-year-old from Hazlet, N.J., became the National Baseball Hall of fame and Museum's 16 millionth visitor.

George Christopher says he's a regular visitor, having been to Cooperstown more than a dozen times.

"I’ve been coming here since I was a couple months old,” said Christopher, who visited with his mother, Beth, who has been a member since the 1980s. “I guess I just got lucky to walk through as the 16 millionth fan, but it’s always special to walk in these doors.”

Christopher was greeted by the Museum’s Senior Staff, who presented him with a Museum Store gift certificate and a membership upgrade to the sustaining level.

The complete list of millionth visitors includes:
