A Babe Ruth uniform and a baseball Rubik's Cube of all things! We had lunch at an outdoor restaurant to enjoy the beautiful weather and location...and worked off some silliness and did some baseball fact checking.
She found a display about Alta Weiss with the photo she has in her baseball card collection. She learned who her tball team last year--"Gibson's Grays"--was named after. And she even found an American Girl doll!! She was a trooper!
Before we went inside, there was plenty to see outside! Brooklyn posed with Woman at Bat and then with a Johnny Padres of the Brooklyn Dodgers (she set a goal to find her name 10 times, but far exceeded and found 82 other references to Brooklyn throughout the day!). Tyler did his best Satchel Paige and Roy Campanella impressions!
In most places that Tyler visits, he will beg and plead for someone to take him the 10-20 miles to the only baseball card shop in town. So you imagine how incredible it was for him to be in Cooperstown where there were at least 10 different shops on one block! But of all the shops, it was Yastrzemski's that had his personal crown jewel. His favorite player .... An Al Kaline 1954 Rookie card!
