Regrettably Senya, I fear the die has already been cast, so far as the IBHOF is concerned. I have an opportunity to visit there next week, riding along with some family members, and I may take a pass on that to stay home. (How much of a mecca could Canastota be, if posters to this forum like myself are so apathetic to the chance to go?) It hasn't the hallowed feel to it that Cooperstown does. (Yes, I've been to both places in the past.)
