COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Jeff Idelson is returning to baseball’s Hall of Fame as interim president. The 56-year-old succeeded Dale Petroskey as Hall president in 2008 and retired in June 2019.
He was replaced by former Los Angeles Angels executive Tim Mead. Mead announced last month that he was resigning as of mid-May.
Hall chairman Jane Forbes Clark says Idelson will return as interim president on Saturday and serve through Aug. 15.
A search committee for a new president includes Clark, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. and Harvey Schiller, former YankeeNets CEO Harvey Schiller.
