The National Baseball Hall of Fame announced on Wednesday that this year's induction ceremony, honoring the induction class of 2020, will be moved from the traditional July date to this September 8th in Cooperstown, NY.

The 2020 class includes Michigan natives Derek Jeter (pictured) and Ted Simmons, Larry Walker, and longtime Major League Baseball Players Association executive director Marvin Miller.

There were no induction ceremonies last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  And this year's ceremony is being moved to try to accommodate more people as the state of New York loosens attendance restrictions due to COVID-19.

Nobody was elected to the Hall of Fame this year by the Baseball Writers Association of America or by any of the committees electing Modern-era or other former players who are eligible. So only the 2020 class will be inducted this year in upstate New York.

In one way or another, these players have had a special impact on me because of the way they played the great game of baseball.
