In the early 60s when I was about 12 I visited Cooperstown and saw my first
baseball game. A demonstration game between the Red Socks and the White
socks. We used to spend our summers in upstate New York near Binghamton.
Gilford was the town. An hour or so from Cooperstown.

We want to go to Cooperstown.
We want to go to Cooperstown.
We want to go to Cooperstown.
But Uncle Lou says NO!

A sumercamp thing.
