This year’s Classic tribute to the game of baseball will be exceptionally patriotic.

Not only is President Barack Obama making a stop in Cooperstown to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum just two days before this year’s Classic, but the first 5,000 fans in attendance will get a complimentary American Flag, courtesy of Woodmen of the World.
