The trophy will be at the Hall of Fame Day Brunch and Induction Ceremony beginning at 11 a.m..

Fordham students and alumni in attendance will have the opportunity to take photos with the trophy.
• Just a reminder that the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers of America Association is holding its annual dinner on Saturday. Here’s all of the key information.
• The latest Baseball America minor league transactions include no new Yankees. Former Yankees right-hander Scott Patterson has signed with the Red Sox, Wilson Betemit signed a minor league deal with the Royals, J.D. Closser signed with the Dodgers and Dane Sardinha (Bronson’s brother) signed with the Phillies.
• Jason Bay talked about the Red Sox negotiations that eventually led him to the Mets.
• The story is no longer online for some reason, but earlier today the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the Cubs are interested in Jonny Gomes, one of several outfielders who could fit what the Yankees are looking for to round out their outfield.
