President Obama will visit Cooperstown and the National Baseball Hall of Fame Thursday, May 22, he announced in his radio address to the national this morning.
“I’ll be heading to Cooperstown, New York – home of the Baseball Hall of Fame – to talk about tourism,” he said. “Because believe it or not, tourism is an export. And if we make it easier for more foreign visitors to visit and spend money at America’s attractions and unparalleled national parks, that helps local businesses and grows the economy for everyone.”
The visit coincides with the launch of the Hall of Fame’s 75th anniversary celebration, which begins Saturday with the Hall of Fame Classic and related events.
