Raines returns to Cooperstown

For the first time since he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Tim Raines has returned to Cooperstown.

Raines was in town as the celebrity host of the 35th annual Otesga Hotel Seniors Open.

"The last few months have been a whirlwind," Raines told Eyewitness News.  "It seems like everywhere I go now people are finding ways to find me.  I can't even sneak anywhere anymore."

Raines retired from baseball following the 2002 season and made the Hall of Fame in his final year of eligibility. 

He was widely regarded as one of the game's best leadoff hitters in the 1980s before winning two World Series titles with the Yankees in 1996 and 1998.
