HOF Game: Good News, Bad News

This summer, the Cubs will be playing in the annual Hall of Fame Game against the San Diego Padres.  They will be playing at, of course, Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, New York on June 16, 2008. 

The bad news… it will be the last time the Hall of Fame Game will be played.  The tradition that has been going on since 1940 will be discontinued after this year. 

HOF prez Dan Petroskey claims that the game has befallen because of “scheduling” issues.

“We’re grateful to Major League Baseball for making an annual Hall of Fame Game possible for so many years, but we also understand their enormous scheduling challenge today, which makes continuing this exhibition game impossible.”

Scheduling seems like a small price to pay, in my opinion.

If you are interested in attending, tickets will be sold over the phone or in person on March 8.  Tickets will NOT be sold online.
