Classic adds big sticks for May 24 game

(Continued)

The Hall also said that the annual pre-game hitting contest will be replaced by a home run derby this year. Doubleday Field was home to the Hall of Fame Game, an in-season exhibition featuring two major league teams, for decades before MLB cut the game from the schedule after the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres were rained out in 2008. The Classic and its pre-game hitting contest followed.

The Classic Home Run Derby will start at 1 p.m. May 24, followed by the Classic at 2:05 p.m. Hall of Famers and major leaguers also will take part in the annual Cooperstown Game Day Parade, which starts at noon May 24.
