Have a ball! See Natalie and Jenna tube, tour baseball museum in Cooperstown

July 24, 2014 at 8:28 AM ET

First it was climbing a wall of ice in Alaska, then jumping off a cliff in Colorado. Natalie and Jenna's latest #TODAYTakesOff adventure may be less terrifying, but it's just as wondrous.  

Thursday they broadcast live from Cooperstown, New York — home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. 

Video: Natalie Morales and TODAY contributing correspondent Jenna Bush Hager are with Joe Torre, Bobby Cox, and Frank Thomas in Cooperstown, New York, where the baseball legends are being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Few places in the United States could lay claim to as many quintessential American summertime traditions as the small town of Cooperstown, from the famous museum to the town's gorgeous, shimmering Otsego Lake.

Video: Natalie Morales and Jenna Bush Hager visit Doubleday Field as part of the TODAY Takes Off series.

Our dynamic duo toured the museum, went tubing on the lake and led a lively rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" — Natalie's favorite.
