COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — The 26th annual Symposium on Baseball and American Culture is getting underway in Cooperstown.

The three-day event starting Wednesday at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is co-sponsored by the State University of New York College at Oneonta and the Hall of Fame. It features more than 60 presentations selected from academic paper submissions across the country. More than 140 participants from 30 states will be represented.

The symposium begins with a keynote address from Janet Marie Smith, senior vice president of planning and development for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Her presentation is entitled: "Back to the Future: Building a Ballpark, Not a Stadium."
