Part of the experience at the Cooperstown Dreams Baseball Camp is the pin trading. Most of the teams get pins made, and other people associated with the camp such as the umpires may also have pins. Depending on the design and the rarity of a pin it will be more or less sought after or you have to trade more pins for it. The boys traded pins in camp, and it sounded like the coaches were in on it too. During the games, siblings would trade. For most it was a fun diversion, and a way to meet other kids, but there were a couple who came by that seemed pretty serious. One had a list he was trying to complete, and when none of the SLO kids had anything he wanted he was on his way to the next place.
