The 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame induction weekend lacked marquee names, rain prevailed and attendance was paltry as a result. However, a stable of Hall of Fame members and other baseball noteworthys still showed up, creating opportunities for autographs and some stories.
A 1929 N.Y. Yankees team-signed baseball is on the auction block, courtesy of a prep school in New Jersey. The ball, signed by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and other Hall of Famers, was acquired by a former monk at the school. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the more than 500 students enrolled at the school.
