On Father’s Day weekend, June 18-20, 2010, The Baseball Hall of Fame holds its 2nd annual Hall of Fame Classic Weekend. Billed as the “Ultimate Father’s Day Weekend”, the 3-day event includes the 1st annual Hall of Fame Golf tournament fundraiser for the Museum, a reprise of the popular “Family Catch,” the Youth Skills Clinic hosted by several former major league players, and a Game Day parade, and a special Voices of the Game program.

The 6 Hall of Famers who will play in this year’s exhibition are: Gary Carter, Bob Feller, Rollie Fingers, Goose Gossage, Harmon Killebrew and Phil Niekro. They will be joined by at least 20 other former major leaguers to round out the lineups for the game.
