A Hall of Fame Ceremony in Williamstown

The Boston Globe’s “Baseball Notes” reports the following about former Williamstown resident and recent baseball Hall of Fame electee Frank Grant:

Baseball historian Jim Overmyer of Lenox reports that 19th-century ballplayer Frank Grant, who grew up in Williamstown and was one of 17 players or officials associated with Negro baseball inducted into the Hall of Fame last Sunday, will be honored again Thursday in a ceremony near his family home, where a plaque will bear his name. Former baseball commissioner Fay Vincent and Jane Forbes Clark of the Clark Art Institute will be on hand in Williamstown for the tribute.

Hopefully someone from Ephblog will be there to report on this occasion.
