1/24 Plan now to attend HOF ceremonies
Are you planning on attending Hall of Fame induction ceremonies to honor late Cubs third baseman Ron Santo? The events will be July 20-23 in Cooperstown, N.Y., and more than 50 Hall of Famers are expected to return. Santo, who was named to nine All-Star Games in his 15 big league seasons, received 15 of 16 votes from the Golden Era Committee members at the Winter Meetings in December to gain induction. He is the 12th third baseman elected to the Hall of Fame and the 15th overall (including Negro leagues players).
The July 22 induction ceremony will place on the grounds outside of the Clark Sports Center, which is located on lower Susquehanna Avenue, just one mile south of the Hall of Fame. The ceremony is held rain or shine, unless severe weather forces the cancellation of the event. Seating for the event is unlimited and free of charge. A blanket or lawn chair is recommended for comfortable viewing. As the weather in Cooperstown can be quite warm in July, it is recommended that visitors bring a cap and sunscreen. It’s a tremendous weekend.
