My annual trip to Cooperstown could not have been better. Robin and the staff at the Landmark were amazing. Our room was spotless and breakfast was a treat (loved the Champagne glass smoothie and fresh quiche). But the highlight of my trip was still ahead. My friend and I returned from a full day at the hall of fame, put our feet up near the fire in the Inn's cozy living room and watched my (not his, though) favorite baseball movie League of Their Own. Robin stopped by to see if we needed anything, noticed the movie we were watching and told me she had a surprise waiting for me at breakfast the next morning. Did she ever! Turns out, one of the hosts at the Landmark is the real life daughter of Slats (the one Gina Davis played in the movie)!! Her name is Laura. She came over to chat and even brought over some memorabilia to show us. What a treat! She told some great stories about her mom and the making of the movie. I didn't know that some of it got filmed right in Cooperstown, at Doubleday Field! That's pretty cool.
Go to the Landmark! Not only will Robin make you feel special, but you might get Laura to tell you stories about Penny Marshall (she directed the movie) and some of the going's on about town during that time. Great stuff. Can't wait for next year and my return.
