President Visiting Cooperstown

A day after visiting with the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks, President Barack Obama is continuing his sports week today in Cooperstown.

Obama is visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame as part of a plan to promote international tourism. Because of baseball’s international popularity, it can serve as a good starting point to this plan, says Jeff Zients, director of the National Economic Council.

This is the first visit to Cooperstown by a sitting U.S. President. George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all visited, but not during their terms as President.

The President’s visit serves as the first big day of a big weekend for Cooperstown. Doubleday Field will host the Hall of Fame Classic on Saturday, a game featuring several notable former big leaguers. Hall of Famers will serve as managers and coaches.
