Cherokee's #1 sports fans, 84-year-old Kenny Bern and his nephew, Jeff Benson,a former Cherokee resident who is now the Sport Editor of the Lyon County Reporter, recently undertook a long trip (by car) to Cooperstown, New York, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum. The two long-time baseball fans were specifically there to witness a friend, Bert Blyleven, be inducted into the Hall , but you can be sure they took in all the sights and sounds of the quaint little village, especially all of the baseball greats who were on hand.
