[edit] Hall of Fame Game

The 1989 Hall of Fame Game was scheduled to be played on July 24 at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, NY near the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The game was scheduled to be played between the Boston Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. However, the Reds were stranded in Montreal, QC after the team's airplane had hydraulic problems. Instead, the Red Sox played a split-squad game between the Boston club and the "yastrzemskis". The "Yastrzemskis" were named in honor of former Red Sox slugger Carl Yastrzemski, who had been inducted into the Hall of Fame a day earlier. The teams played to a seven inning 4 - 4 tie.
