It’s one thing to be able to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But to be able to play in Cooperstown, N.Y. That’s what is on deck for the Viera Hawks 12U Travel Baseball Team, which will take part in the Cooperstown Dreams Park and American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame Invitational Tournament from June 2-9.

In addition to playing against, and interacting with teams and players from around the country, the Viera Hawks will get to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame, a must-see trip for any true baseball fan. Team records and photographs also will be displayed in the American Youth Hall of Fame.

Players will spend seven days and six nights in the Baseball Village clubhouses. Each team is guaranteed at least seven games and each player will receive a Cooperstown Dreams Park home and away jersey.
