COOPERSTOWN, NY -- At the Village of Cooperstown's annual Arbor Day celebration, a tree will be dedicated to Homer Osterhoudt, who passed away on June 30th, 2018 at 100 years old.
Homer helped mix the concrete that built the Baseball Hall of Fame. He was known throughout the village for attending every Hall of Fame Induction since 1939, except for three, because he was in the Army Air Corps during World War II.
Osterhoudt was a retired mailman who walked more than 10 miles a day through the village streets for several decades.
The dedication will be held at 1pm on Monday, May 13th at his long-time Walnut Street home, in Cooperstown.
