BASEBALL HALL OF FAME FEELS EFFECT OF HR RECORD
Published November 2, 1998
The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, has "concluded its busiest October ever," according to Murray Chass of the N.Y. TIMES. More than 36,000 visitors "flocked" to the Hall of Fame during October to see goods and paraphernalia used by Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa as they broke MLB's HR record. September attendance was up 78% from last year while the total attendance of more than 70,000 for the last two months was a record for that period. The Hall projects attendance for '98 to be up 12%, or about 320,000, from '97, which would represent its first increase since '93 and its largest jump since '95 (N.Y. TIMES, 11/1).
