Induction of the Baseball Hall of Fame will be in September

Cooperstown. The Baseball Hall of Fame moved this year’s induction ceremony to Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and the deceased Marvin Miller July 25-September 8 for a crowd to attend as coronavirus restrictions ease.

The Hall’s award presentations will remain on July 24 as an indoor, television-only event.. Presentations include the 2020 Baseball Writers Association of America Professional Excellence Awards to the deceased Nick cafardo and by 2021 to Dick Kaegel, from the 2020 Ford C. Frick Awards for Transmission Excellence to Ken Harrelson and from 2021 to Al Michaels, and the 2020 Buck O’Neil Lifetime Achievement Award winner, David Montgomery.
