    I'm planning to make the trip up from south GA if I can get the week off from work. I've never been to the Hall, so this is the perfect time to go. In addition to the induction ceremony, it looks like I'll need about 3 days to see everything inside. An opportunity like this may not come for another 20 years, if ever.
    i wouldn't say you need 3 days but you can spend a lot of time in there

    it is mecca for a baseball fan

    Because of mutual acquaintances, Ive met Bobby Cox a couple times and hes given me his tickets before (well, he gave me Hank Aarons). Obviously a big fan before, but even bigger after meeting him. Glavine was my Moms favorite player and she met him several times. I still have a lot of crap she collected from him. This might be a must do trip for me for sentimental reasons. I wish Chipper was in this class, would have been even cooler.

    Might be a good idea to save up vacation time for Bryce Harper's induction.

    I'm really tempted to go, but it is over 550 miles from me. That kind of distance I tend to reserve for vacation, not a couple days excursion. If I did this, I would probably not make it to Atlanta this year, since that's about the same distance (Atlanta is about 580 miles away).

    I definitely want to go at some point but just not sure when. Smoltz was by far my favorite of the Big Three, but this is a unique situation with 2 out of the 3 going in plus Bobby. I've never even seen anyone inducted into the Braves' HOF, so I can't eliminate options that way. Decisions, decisions.

    It is tempting.

    Where do fans usually stay? There are like 6 hotels near Cooperstown.

    Since I'm living in NYC and it's a 3 and a half hour car ride from there, don't have much excuse except needing to rent a car (people living in Manhattan don't drive lol).

    Just branch out a little more. It's not a nice hotel, but there's a Motel (they call it an inn, but it's a Motel) that's pretty cheap and not a far drive from town, downside to that will be finding parking. Unfortunately since they announce these things so far in advance, finding a hotel will suck I'm sure. But if worst comes to worst I'm sure there there places in Utica, Oneonta, or on of the other surrounding towns that would be like a 20 mile drive to Cooperstown.

    Me and a buddy were talking about it. It is kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity for a fan of any team to see three teammates go in at the same time.

    So as of right now, the tally is:

    7 most definitely, and 6 maybe.

    The more the merrier! A once in a lifetime experience to have 3 guys from the same team go in... and this will most likely be the last time we see two 300 game winners go in together let alone teammates... and also the 3-4-5 winningest managers of all time.

    I really want to go. But, not sure that I'll be able to, especially now that I live in Oregon.

    I'll be along term maybe. If I have a job that can let me swing a day trip out there I may have to do it. Especially if my family's trip falls through or we go before the induction.
