 COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -Rain won't stop the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Sunday afternoon, but the outdoor ceremony for Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn will be delayed or postponed if there is thunder, officials said Friday.
The ceremony is scheduled to start rain or shine at 1:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown. The National Weather Service is forecasting thunderstorms for upstate New York on Saturday night, and a 50 percent chance of rain Sunday.
If there's a threat of severe weather near the start time, the ceremony will be delayed until 3:30 p.m. If the threat persists, the ceremony would be postponed until 10 a.m. Monday, hall officials said.
If storms continue into Monday morning, the public ceremony will be canceled and a private ceremony will be held for the Hall of Famers and their families. Should storms hit while the Sunday public ceremony is under way, the remainder will be canceled and there will be a private ceremony held to conclude them.
More than 50 other hall members are expected to attend, along with thousands of fans.
``Tens of thousands of fans have made a special effort to be in Cooperstown for the inductions of Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. into the National Baseball Hall of Fame,'' hall of fame president Dale Petroskey said. ``We know these fans have waited many years to see their heroes inducted, and even though we cannot control the weather, we will do everything possible to hold the public ceremony.''
The ceremony will be televised live on ESPN Classic, with a live Web cast at baseballhall.org. ESPN Radio will broadcast the ceremony nationally.
