FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Commissioner Selig Arranges Meeting Between Dupuy, Idelson and SaveTheFameGame.com in Cooperstown
COOPERSTOWN, NY (July 21, 2008) — The SaveTheFameGame.com campaign today announced that Commissioner Bud Selig has arranged a meeting between SaveTheFameGame.com founder Kristian Connolly, Major League Baseball president Bob Dupuy, and Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson in Cooperstown during the Hall of Fame’s Induction weekend, which begins this Friday, July 25 and goes through Sunday, July 27.
The meeting will take place at the Hall of Fame at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday.
“While the ultimate goal was to sit down and talk with Mr. Selig directly, the opportunity to meet with Mr. Dupuy and Mr. Idelson is certainly a very positive development in the campaign to have the nearly 70-year-old Hall of Fame Game tradition continue,” said Connolly. “I thank Mr. Selig for arranging this meeting, and I cannot help but view the upcoming meeting as a validation of the campaign, as a recognition of the impact that passionate baseball fans from all over the country can have on the national pastime’s direction and future, and as a signal of MLB’s and the Hall of Fame’s willingness to rethink the decision to end the great baseball, American and Cooperstown tradition of the Hall of Fame Game.”
SaveTheFameGame.com had sent Commissioner Selig three separate letters asking for “the opportunity to discuss with you the passion that exists for keeping a great American and baseball tradition alive … and have an open discussion about options for retaining Major League Baseball’s participation in the Hall of Fame Game, as it has been since 1940.”
Full text of SaveTheFameGame.com’s three letters to the commissioner, as well as the prior two responses from Mr. Selig, can be found in the “Press Releases” or “Letters” sections of the SaveTheFameGame.com.
