Hall of Famers begin arriving for baseball’s best weekend
The 2015 Hall of Fame inductee called the 92nd All-Star Game on Tuesday as part of FOX’s team then arrived in Cooperstown on Thursday for Hall of Fame Weekend.
“It’s been a bit of a July scramble, but it’s all good,” Smoltz said. “This is a great weekend. I want to come back as many times as I can. FOX has always been good about letting me get out of (the Saturday telecast during Hall of Fame Weekend).”
Hall of Fame Membership
As the keepers of the Game’s history, the Hall of Fame helps you relive your memories and celebrate baseball history.
“I had breakfast with Tony Oliva this morning at the Otesaga Hotel,” said Tim Kurkjian, the 2022 BBWAA Career Excellence Award winner who will be honored at Saturday’s Awards Presentation. “Then I was told that Jim Kaat is coming to the Awards Presentation and wants to sit in the front row. So that’s how my day has gone so far. That’s a pretty good day.”
For Kurkjian, his family now includes the award winners and Hall of Famers who return to Cooperstown every summer. And that family grows each year, as new members experience the weekend of a lifetime.
