Lots of Reds fans planning travel to Cooperstown for induction

The road to Cooperstown is going to be well traveled in July by Reds fans heading to the induction for Barry Larkin.

The Reds organization and the Reds Hall of Fame are putting together a little road trip to Cooperstown.  Hall of Fame Executive Director Rick Walls says there's been a lot of interest.

"Soon as Barry was announced that he was going to Cooperstown in July, we've had a lot of phone calls and emails...a lot of fans wondering how they're going to get to Cooperstown this year," said Walls.

However, finding a room in Cooperstown may be tough because many hotels have been sold out for a year, but the Reds are putting a trip together.

"We're going to organize a bus trip up to Cooperstown...try to give the fans an opportunity to go up with a group of Reds fans. We really want to make a sea of Red up in Cooperstown...really make Barry feel like he's back in Cincinnati again," said Walls.

Walls says membership has its privileges.

"If you're a member of the Reds Hall of Fame one of the nice benefits is free admission to the museum," he said. "It's very crowded in Cooperstown that weekend so you want to make sure you give yourself plenty of time to visit all the activities and festivities that are going on."

There's more than just baseball in Cooperstown including the Fenimore Art Museum, the Glimmerglass Opera, Otsego Lake and the Baseball Heroes Wax Museum.
