Alas, no Hall of Fame ceremonies in Cooperstown in 2020

For many, the annual induction ceremony of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown marks the high point of the baseball season. It’s usually late July and the season has resumed from the All-Star break. We have a good sense of how the divisions are shaking out, and who needs to get busy if they’re going to make it to the postseason.

It’s also a time to remind ourselves of how great baseball and those who play it can be, as we honor and remember the best of the best.

Unfortunately, in 2020 there will be no ceremony. Pending inductees Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, and Eras committee inductees Ted Simmons, and executive Marvin Miller won’t be entered into the hallowed halls until 2021, according to a recent release from the Hall of Fame.

It’s sad, absolutely, but at least we know the 2021 ceremony is going to be epic.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
