just wanted to let everyone know that mlb has decided to discontinue participating in the hall of fame game after the 2008 game. This has been a tradition sence 1940. mlb has said that its decision is based on scheduling difficulties but yet they can schedule games in japan and elsewheres. this is not only a loss of a game but a loss of thousands of tourists and baseball fans migrating to cooperstown spending $ on everything from hotel rooms souvineers clothing and food it is a huge economic boost for the cooperstown area. So please go to this site and send the email as requested. thanx for all your help and please send this on to other people to show support for one of baseballs best traditions.
