COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Fans are pouring into Cooperstown for Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, and they’re coming in even earlier this year.
Officials are preparing for the potential for record crowds.
“The all time record for attendance was 2007 when Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. were inducted the estimate was 82,500. We are lucky we've had a number of successful and enjoyable weekends. We are able to draw fans locally and regionally and all over the country,” said Jon Shestakofsky, the vice president of communications and education.
WKTV will take the 12 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m. newscasts on the road Friday, where we will broadcast live right on Main Street across from the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Then on Saturday and Sunday, NewsChannel 2 will have live reports in the morning and the evening to bring you all the sights and sounds from HOF Weekend 2019 in Cooperstown.
