COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of Saturday's Hall of Fame Classic at Doubleday Field.

Festivities were moved a block down Main Street into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, where fans were able to interact with about two dozen former major league players who had made the trip to play in the annual exhibition game.

Former pitcher Dennis Rasmussen, who played in two of the previous three games, was happy the fans had a chance to meet some of their heroes. He and other players were stationed throughout the museum, greeting fans and posing for pictures.

The cancellation prevented Dmitri Young from a chance to win the legends hitting contest for a third straight year.
