Game NEVER MIND: Cubs PPD San Diego
This was among the shortest broadcasts ever – it seemed no more than a 30 minute show between start (after the delay) till cancellation (oddly right during an interview.) They seemed so sure they were going to play until the end, it was sad to watch even while knowing what was going to happen. If everyone was going to travel to Cooperstown anyway, you’d like them to have played the game.
My idea is they should merge the Futures Game and the Hall of Fame Game, having all the kids play at Cooperstown. I think there might be a timing issues and people not wanting to leave the All Star site to see the game, but it’d be fun and it’s going to have to be minor league players if they ever resurrect the concept.
