The Last Scheduled Hall of Fame Game
The baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY has sponsored a Hall of Fame game between various major league teams each year since 1940. Today, June 16, 2008 was to be the last of these games -- scheduling an exhibition game (in addition to the All-Star Game) has become very difficult. As it turned out, this day made history no one expected: the last Hall of Fame Game was held in 2007!

Just as well, about game time, a huge storm hit
An that was the news. My son-in-law Brandon was even on TV regarding the rain-out
There will be no make up game. We missed the Last Hall of Fame Game by one year!
