Ian Anderson mastered five innings of no-hit baseball as he pitched his Atlanta Braves to victory in game three of the 2021 World Series, and last week he visited Cooperstown to take a look at the game mementos he donated to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
“This is the first time I’ve seen this,” Mr. Anderson said, sounding a little awed to see his own major league cap and ball from the game on display in the Hall’s “Autumn Glory” exhibition.
The 24-year-old native of Clifton Park, New York, just 70 miles to the northeast of Cooperstown, had his family in tow as they took turns to get a close-up look at the display. Mr. Anderson said he grew up dreaming of somehow seeing himself in the Hall of Fame, humbling as it was on his first look.
