Tickets for the one-hour roundtable program cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Tickets may be reserved by Hall members from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. starting Monday by calling 607-547-0397. Remaining tickets, if any, will go on sale to the general public Aug. 26.

<\Bz18>Fingers to host Seniors Open

National Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers will serve as celebrity host for the 31st annual Otesaga Hotel Seniors Open and Pro-Am Golf Tournament, which runs Sept. 3-6 at the Leatherstocking Golf Course in Cooperstown.

Fingers will participate in the Sept. 3 Pro-Am, which begins with an 11:30 a.m. shotgun start. Fingers also will speak at the fundraiser dinner later that day.

Proceeds from the Pro-Am will benefit Pathfinder Village, a residential community in Edmeston dedicated to children and adults with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. Proceeds also will benefit the Hall’s educational programs.
