That would still leave time for folks to spend the Memorial Day holiday at home on Monday.
The staff at the Hall of Fame will have another big challenge July 28. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America declined to induct any players this year. Not to be dismayed, the Hall will induct the late umpire Hank O’Day, former Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert and 19th century player Deacon White in addition to honoring Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig and Rogers Hornsby, among others who never had a formal induction ceremony because of wartime restrictions.
We congratulate the Hall on not letting anything rain on its parade.
