COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony September 8, will return to its standard seating format. 

The decision comes in lieu of Gov. Andrew Cuomo lifting COVID-19 restrictions last week. 

The induction of Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons will be held on the grounds of the Cooperstown’s Clark Sports Center and will be broadcast live on MLB Network. 

Tickets will not be required for the event’s free lawn seating area.
