HOF Game Dies in the Rain

This year’s Major League Baseball Hall of Fame game was to be the last of an annual tradition that began in 1940. Turns out, last year’s game was the last. Does that make sense? Rain knocked out Monday’s exhibition game in Cooperstown between the Cubs and Padres. MLB announced in January that the exhibition game was ending because of scheduling conflicts. The decision was unpopular among many fans, and some are protesting to keep the game alive. Good luck to ‘em. Hell, I didn’t even know the game was scheduled until I heard it had been rained out.
