Will Bill Conlin Retain His Spot in Baseball’s Hall of Fame Until July?
Bill Conlin won J.G. Taylor Spink award last summer for his achievements as a baseball writer. Thus, his portrait hangs in Cooperstown amongst the greatest names ever associated with America’s pastime. After recent allegations that Conlin molested a number of children in the 1970s, some people are wondering about his place in the Hall of Fame. Conlin’s mug is scheduled to remain in the hall until replaced with the 2012 winner in July. Not everybody seems to be thrilled about that idea. [New York Times]
