(AP) — Baseball’s Hall of Fame is moving this year’s induction ceremony for Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons and the late Marvin Miller from July 25 to Sept. 8.
The decision was made so a crowd may attend as coronavirus restrictions ease. The Hall announced that the ceremony will take place outdoors on the Hall’s lawn as a ticketed event with a limit on crowd size.
The inductions were to have taken place in July 2020 but were postponed due to the pandemic. No candidates were elected in 2021.
Also around the majors:
— Rangers closer Ian Kennedy has been placed on the 10-day injured list because of a mild left hamstring strain. Kennedy has converted 12 of his 13 save opportunities while posting a 2.53 ERA. He hasn’t pitched since Friday.
