No, he is not going to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame

President Barack Obama says he’s heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame to stress how tourism can lead to good-paying jobs.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says he’ll be in Cooperstown, New York, on Thursday, May 22 2014.

Obama also is urging Congress to spend more to modernize U.S. bridges, roads and ports. He says first-class infrastructure attracts first-class jobs.

Obama warns that almost 700,000 jobs are at risk if Congress doesn’t authorize more transportation dollars by the end of summer.

No details of the visit, but you will be treated to all sorts of stories and statistics before the week is out. Wonder how he will get there? Probably his new helicopter. It could land on Doubleday Field where the Annual Hall Of Fame game is played and where baseball was rreputedly invented and first played. One thing for sure, he won’t take a train to Cooperstown.
