Hours of travel, "no-brainer" for baseball fans

Upon finding out that some of the greatest players of all-time are being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and those players happen to be connected to your favorite team the question must be asked.  "Am I going to Cooperstown for the induction?"

For about 50,000 baseball fans, the answer to that question for 2014's induction was a resounding "Yes!"  The crowd was largely made up of Braves fans, with Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and Bobby Cox being inducted.  There were a lot of White Sox fans, cheering on Frank Thomas, Cardinals fans for Tony LaRussa, and the fans with the least amount of travel - Yankees fans in support of Joe Torre.

Not only is travel a concern, but lodging is as big a problem.  Cooperstown only holds about 2,000 residents and the hotel options are limited.  Many fans, and other members of the media, that Fox 40 talked to were staying as far away as Albany and many even right here in Binghamton.  But the added travel and the long hours, many of which were spent standing, is a little price to pay for the memories of being able to see some of the best players of all time enshrined into the Hall of Fame.
