American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame

Each year, the participants of the Cooperstown Dreams Park National Invitational Tournament, in honor of their accomplishments, regardless of outcome, are inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame. Much like the National Baseball Hall of Fame for major league baseball players, each participant, upon induction, receives the coveted American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame ring and officially becomes one of the Cooperstown Dreams Park Little Majors. The studio photo of each player with his teammates is affixed to the Commemorative Induction Plaque for future enshrinement on the walls of the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.

Our inaugural inductees made history in 1996 becoming the first 10-12 years olds to play ball in the mythical setting of Cooperstown, New York. Each player and coach had the privilege to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to observe the great relics of our national game and in the not too distant future will be able to see their own memorabilia from their week at Cooperstown Dreams Park in the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame. Our curator and staff are collecting home run and no-hitter balls, uniforms, banners, hats, bats, and all other important pieces that tell the story of Cooperstown Dreams Park. In the near future Dreams Park alums will be able to return to Cooperstown to see themselves and their teammates immortalized on the walls of the museum gallery.

The collections are growing with each new group of inductees helping to make the dream of the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame a reality. Someday our Little Majors will be able to bring their sons and daughters to Cooperstown to witness their glory days in the annals of youth baseball history.
