Baseball: a game played so well by so few.

"So few" is a reference to the Who's Who of baseball, the unique personalities joined by their extraordinary skills and immortalized in a shrine in a small New York community. The Hall of Fame, like major league baseball itself, traces its heritage to the summer of 1876 and owes its special place to the players, umpires, managers, and officials who have dominated the game for more than a century. Join the Sporting News for a trip through the sacred halls of Cooperstown, where the ghosts of baseball past gather for one last swing at a hanging curve, one last triumphant pass around the bases- and one final, glorious victory.
