Baseball Hall of Fame unveils two new exhibits
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- The Baseball Hall of Fame unveils two new exhibits just in time for the start of baseball season. Baseball legend Hank Aaron will be in Cooperstown next weekend to introduce the first exhibit which chronicles his life.
Then, on Memorial Day weekend, the Hall of Fame will introduce an exhibit on Latino baseball history, but the biggest change is coming Father's Day weekend.
This will be the first year for the Hall of Fame Classic, which replaces the former Hall of Fame game that was cancelled because of scheduling problems.

The new game will feature former Hall of Famers and retired players. It highlights a whole weekend of events.
"There'll be a game on Sunday of Father's Day Weekend, June 21st, which is also the first day of summer, and that will be part of a whole day of activities. We'll have a parade in the morning; we'll have a hitting contest, autograph signings throughout the game, and really a fun, interactive family event for Father's Day,” said Jeff Idelson, Baseball Hall of Fame President.
The ceremony for Hall of Fame inductees Rickey Henderson, Jim Rice, and Joe Gordon will be in July.
