Amidst COVID-19 concerns, the 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been postponed until 2021. The ceremony was originally scheduled to take place July 24-27, 2020, in Cooperstown, New York.

Former White Sox broadcaster Ken “Hawk” Harrelson was slated to receive the Ford C. Frick award on the Saturday of that weekend, but the ceremony will now take place in the summer of 2021. Hawk released a statement regarding the postponement via the White Sox Twitter account:

The delaying of such a gathering comes as no surprise due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While White Sox fans will surely be disappointed in having to wait another year to see their beloved broadcaster’s enshrinement into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Hawk said it best. This was absolutely the right decision given the current circumstances.

The 2020 and 2021 classes will both be celebrated on the weekend of July 23-26 of 2021.
