‘The Wall That Heals’ to Come to Cooperstown Memorial Day Weekend

Facebook

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will honor the longtime connection between baseball and America’s military during Memorial Day Weekend as part of the fifth annual Hall of Fame Classic.

As part of that tribute, the Hall of Fame and the village of Cooperstown will host the “Wall That Heals,” a 250-foot replica of the original Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The exhibit, which travels across America, will make its central New York debut with the visit to Cooperstown, May 25-27, made possible by the Baseball Hall of Fame and its salute to the military with the Hall of Fame Classic Legends Game and special programs.

The “Wall That Heals” will be on display Saturday, May 25 through Monday, May 27, open 24 hours a day and free of charge in the Doubleday Field parking lot. The Wall’s visit coincides with Saturday’s Hall of Fame Classic and Monday’s observance of Memorial Day.

Since its inception in 1996, over two million people have visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund’s traveling exhibit. It has made stops in over 350 U.S. locales in addition to an April 1999 tour of the Four Provinces of Ireland and a visit to Canada in 2005.
