COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -The Baseball Hall of Fame Game, an annual tradition in Cooperstown, N.Y., for more than six decades, will end after this year's contest between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres.
Hall of Fame officials say Major League Baseball decided keeping the game was too difficult because of the complexities of the major league schedule and ``all its inherent challenges.''
The first Hall of Fame Game was in 1940, and its the last surviving in-season exhibition game on the major league schedule.
This year's game is slated for June 16.
