National Baseball Hall of Fame Set To Reopen
Just down the road from Binghamton, The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is going to reopen after closing its doors in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Officials said in a press release that the hall will open back up on June 26, according to a report from CBS Sports' Matt Snyder. The Hall of Fame has not had any visitors since March.
Hall President Tim Mead said in the release that all proper health guidelines will be followed once the doors are back open, as outlined by New York State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So, one must think that will mean face mask requirements and social distancing, among others.
Something else the hall is implementing, the CBS Sports report explains, is timed tickets to control how many people are inside and when. Those will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
On the negative side, the 2020 Hall of Fame induction and the surrounding festivities are still canceled. 2020 inductees -- Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and Marvin Miller -- will be included in the ceremonies for the 2021 inductees.
