In honor of Black History Month and in anticipation of the April opening of the new exhibit celebrating the life of Hank Aaron, the National Baseball Hall of Fame will celebrate the achievements of African-American ballplayers with a full week of programs and activities starting Monday, Feb. 16, and running through Saturday, Feb. 21.
Each day, special artifact-spotlight presentations will feature artifacts from some of the game's greatest African-American players, such as Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige and more. These spotlights will take place in the museum's Pride and Passion exhibit, which shares the story of the African-American baseball experience, and will also include a brief tour and overview of the exhibit. Other themed daily activities during the week include hands-on activities for kids in the Education Gallery and documentary films airing in the museum's Bullpen Theater.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — New York City and Major League Baseball welcomed two new cathedrals this week with the opening of Citi Field in Flushing and the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Now, fans can relive these historic openers with artifacts from both inaugural games in Cooperstown, scheduled to be on display by the end of April in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's Today's Game exhibit.
Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson acquired the following items Thursday from the inaugural game at the new Yankee Stadium: the bat used by Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore to hit the first grand slam in the new park; a game-used commemorative Opening Day baseball signed by Indians winning pitcher Cliff Lee; and the spikes worn by New York's starting pitcher, CC Sabathia.
On Monday night, the San Diego Padres' Jody Gerut donated the bat he used for the first hit in Citi Field, a leadoff home run. The Museum also received the ceremonial first-pitch ball, signed by Hall of Famer Tom Seaver and Mets legend Mike Piazza, along with dirt from the batter's box.
These items will join the more than 35,000 items in the collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Throughout the season, the Museum will add artifacts from historic moments and achievements.

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Every day in Cooperstown brings a chance to see history. But on Saturday, July 25, fans on Main Street will have the chance to see legends.
As part of Hall of Fame Weekend, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will present the Red Carpet Arrivals on Saturday, July 25, giving fans the opportunity to watch as the returning Hall of Famers enter the Museum for a private evening reception. Fifty-one Hall of Famers have already committed to return for Hall of Fame Weekend 2009, and the legends of the game will ride on trolleys down Main Street before hopping off at the front of the Museum.
MLB Network will televise the 2009 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony live Sunday, July 26, from Cooperstown. Coverage of the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. EDT with MLB Tonight: Hall of Fame Edition, a pre-ceremony show from MLB Network's studios in Secaucus, N.J. Hosted by Greg Amsinger and MLB Network Baseball Insiders and Hall of Fame voters Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal, the pre-ceremony show will feature profiles on this year's inductees: Joe Gordon, Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice. Live coverage of the ceremony, including each inductee's acceptance speech, will begin at 1:30 p.m. EDT and will feature on-site reporting from MLB Network's Harold Reynolds and Victor Rojas. MLB.com will simulcast MLB Network's coverage beginning at 12:30 p.m. EDT.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. The stars will be out in Cooperstown this weekend, but you won't need to stay up for the late show to learn the top 10 reasons to come to Cooperstown, July 24-27, for the induction of the Class of 2009:
Cooperstown, N.Y., will become Baseball Town USA once again this weekend in an annual rite of passage that this year has a special double dose of talent coming out of left field. The National Baseball Hall of Fame is holding another coming-in party, and this year's inductees figure to bring a buzz to the otherwise sleepy New York town to celebrate not only the great players being honored, but the game itself.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will welcome educational ambassador Ron Bolin to the Hall of Fame to debut his new educational program on the Black Sox scandal at 1 p.m.
Bolin's programs use artifacts, audience participation and lively role play to create an engaging and educational experience for Museum visitors. The program will take place in the Education Gallery and is included in the price of admission. Seating for the program -- which is a part of the Museum's ongoing Baseball Wisdom series -- is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Bolin will appear in a 1919 White Sox home uniform and period catcher's gear while educating the audience about the Black Sox. The program will last about 45 minutes and will include a question-and-answer session.
The 1919 Chicago White Sox earned the name "Black Sox" after eight players were banned from baseball for life for throwing the World Series. The players, including former .400 hitter Shoeless Joe Jackson, were accused of intentionally losing the Fall Classic to the Cincinnati Reds.
The Baseball Writers' Association of America elected left fielders Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice as members of the Class of 2009 on Jan. 12, while the Veterans Committee similarly tabbed second baseman Joe Gordon for the same honor last Dec. 8.
All three players will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Induction Ceremony in Cooperstown on Sunday, July 26.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame features 289 members, including 2009 electees Joe Gordon, Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice. Included are 202 former Major League players, 35 Negro leaguers, 26 executives or pioneers, 18 managers and eight umpires.
The Baseball Writers' Association of America has elected 108 former players to the Hall of Fame, while the Hall of Fame Committee on Baseball Veterans has elected 153 candidates (92 Major Leaguers, 26 pioneers/executives, 18 managers, nine Negro leaguers and eight umpires). The defunct Committee on Negro Leagues selected nine members between 1971-77. The Hall of Fame currently has 65 living members.
