As summer winds down, the action is heating up in Cooperstown as the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will present a Voices of the Game program on Labor Day.
Rollie Fingers, a 1992 Hall of Fame inductee, the winner of the 1981 American League Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player Award, will be featured in a discussion of his career and baseball today at the museum at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 2. Fingers, who will be in Cooperstown to serve as the Hall of Fame Ambassador for the traditional post-Labor Day Otesaga Hotel Seniors Open Pro-Am on Sept. 3 in Cooperstown, saved 341 career games with the A’s, Padres and Brewers while redefining the role of the relief pitcher.
Tickets for the Labor Day Voices of the Game program are available for $10 for adults or $5 for children younger than 12. Tickets can be reserved by calling 547-0397 weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The one-hour program will feature stories from Fingers and a question-and-answer session with the audience.
