2017 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Longtime Angels public relations maestro Tim Mead, who now is the president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, said in an interview with Dan Schlossberg at Forbes that he’d like to update the museum at Cooperstown.

From Schlossberg:

“Certain exhibits will change,” he said. “We have a general store here. Somewhere down the line – but I have no idea when it’s going to be – we will do something to enhance the layout of the museum. The 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson (integrated the majors) is coming up in 2022 and we’re looking throughout the museum about updating it. A lot of things can be done with updates but not necessarily an overhaul.”

Mead worked for the Angels for 40 years before being hired by the Hall of Fame in 2019.

The Hall of Fame was closed for a few months this year during the COVID-19 pandemic, but reopened on June 26 with enhanced safety procedures.

The induction ceremony, annually the biggest event in Cooperstown, was originally set for July 26, but was postponed. Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons, and Marvin Miller will instead be inducted along with next year’s class on July 25, 2021.
