Okay, it's not Canton OH, but I haven't been there so this makes up for it. A place that made Babe Ruth's bat and who knows how many current major leaguers. I was edified.

You must visit this American Institution. Anna Lee was an excellent tour guide and host. She insured we could hear clearly, was safety conscious and very polite. All the employees were more than polite and always enjoyed conversing with the tourists. Great take!!
