I'm visiting with my parents in Cooperstown, New York, and learned that the National Baseball Hall of Fame announced yesterday that the Pittsburgh Pirates will play the Cincinnatti Reds in the Hall of Fame Game on May 15, 2006. The Pirates will be the home team.
This news raises one question for me.
Does the absence of a Jumbotron in historic Doubleday Field mean that there won't be a pierogie race?
A pierogie race past familiar sights in the pastoral village of Cooperstown would be an intriguing contrast to the race that usually passes through an urban landscape.
