As the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates 75 years this summer, some of the latest unique and inspirational stories of the National Pastime will be celebrated through the Museum’s Authors Series program.

The Hall hosts 11 “Authors’ Series” events throughout the season, bringing noted baseball authors to Cooperstown for special lectures and book signings. They will be in the Bullpen Theater at 2 p.m. (except where noted) and are included with admission. Authors will discuss their work and take questions from the audience, then sign copies of their books. Seating in the Bullpen Theater is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
