COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (WBNG) -- The National Baseball Hall of Fame announced Wednesday that this year's induction ceremony will be held on Sept. 8 at 1:30 p.m.

It was originally scheduled for July 25.

The ceremony will be held in front of a limited crowd as an outdoor ticketed event at the Clark Sports Center.

The 2021 Induction Ceremony will honor the members of the Class of 2020, which includes Derek Jeter, Marvin Miller, Ted Simmons and Larry Walker. No candidates were elected for Induction in 2021.

The Hall of Fame said lawn seating at the ceremony will be free.

However, unlike in the past when seating was open, the Hall of Fame said tickets will be required. A limited number of tickets will be available for fans beginning July 12. As of Wednesday, the Hall of Fame said seating areas will be designated for vaccinated and unvaccinated ticket holders.

Chairman of the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum Jane Forbes Clark said they are thrilled to be able to welcome the Hall of Famers.

“Returning the Induction Ceremony to an outdoor event will provide the baseball community with the opportunity to visit Cooperstown and celebrate the Induction of four of the game’s Greats," Clark said.

The Hall of Fame said planning continues to be adapted to the guidelines that are put in place by the CDC and New York State.
