OUR TOWN: In New York, Denise Richardson notes the Cooperstown Bat Co., which "produces and sells autographed collectible bats, will begin reviewing its product line to include elected inductees and also to reflect the Hall of Fame's 75th anniversary celebration this year." CBC Owner Connie Haney said, "We feel it's going to be a great year for Cooperstown and the Hall of Fame. It's going to have a very positive impact on tourism through the course of the year." Richardson notes the lack of living honorees last year "negatively impacted attendance and local tourism." Cooperstown Cookie Co. Owner & President Tony Zieno said, "Last year was a quiet year, to say the least. This is a bounce-back year for the Hall -- if it's good for the Hall, it's good for Cooperstown" (Oneonta DAILY STAR, 1/10).
