Catch Cooperstown Classic on HAN this Sunday
Two Fairfield County high school baseball teams will get the chance to battle each other on one of the most legendary ballparks in the land this Sunday afternoon, April 19. The Hersam Acorn Network will broadcast the game live on streaming video.
The Brien McMahon High School Senators, for the fourth time in school history, will travel to Cooperstown, N.Y., this weekend and battle the Norwalk High School Bears — led by head coach Pete Tucci — on Doubleday Field on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Cooperstown is the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The stadium, located close to the Hall of Fame, is named after Abner Doubleday, who was involved in the founding of baseball in the 1830s.
