COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- The scene along Main Street in this quiet, unassuming town can best be described as tranquil baseball Americana.
People nod and say hello when you cross the street. They use old Saturday Evening Posts and Life Magazines to decorate their storefront windows. They sell Roy Hobbs jerseys and Wonderboy bats, both from the dreamy baseball movie "The Natural." It all feels rather surreal, like somewhere perched around a corner, you expect to find Norman Rockwell painting away.
