Baseball is the name of the game in this picturesque central New York village where, legend has it, Abner Doubleday and his cronies first played the sport on a cow pasture in 1839.
Today, hundreds of thousands of fans descend on this tiny lakefront village each year, to pay homage to the boys of summer at the National Baseball Hall of Fame -- and watch games at Doubleday Field.
Cooperstown, too, has its own allure. This Norman Rockwell-esque town oozes charm -- and you won't see a Starbucks or McDonald's for miles. Take a walk down Main Street. It's like a stroll back in time... baseball time, that is.
