This summer, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., is celebrating its 75th anniversary. In honor of the Diamond Anniversary, the Hall of Fame will host a concert celebration on Saturday, August 2. Heading up the concert will be long-time baseball fan and 12-time GRAMMY Award winner Paul Simon, as well as the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, and Hall of Fame legends, Cal Ripken Jr., Ozzie Smith, Tom Seaver, Bernie Williams and more.

The live event is part of a 14-month musical celebration of the Hall of Fame’s anniversary. Peanuts Worldwide and Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates have created 75 limited edition Baseball Hall of Fame Peanuts posters, which will be available for bid in an on-going, fundraising silent auction to raise funds to keep the Hall of Fame and Museum operating.

The August concert will be held at the Clark Sports Center, with ticket prices for reserved seating starting at $100. Free lawn seating is available behind VIP sections.
