The class of 2020 will have to wait a little bit longer to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this summer, it was announced Wednesday.
The induction ceremony, which had been scheduled for July 25 in Cooperstown, New York, instead will be held at 1:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Sept. 8. It will take place outdoors in front of limited crowds as coronavirus restrictions ease.
Derek Jeter, Marvin Miller, Ted Simmons and Larry Walker will be honored.
\"On behalf of our Board of Directors and our Staff, we are thrilled to be able to welcome our Hall of Famers -- the living legends -- and fans back to Cooperstown to celebrate the Induction of the Class of 2020,\" Hall of Fame chairman Jane Forbes Clark said in a statement.
\"Returning the Induction Ceremony to an outdoor event will provide the baseball community with the opportunity to visit Cooperstown and celebrate the Induction of four of the game\'s Greats.\"
