Former Yanks p.r. man is president of Hall of Fame
A laurel and hearty handshake to Jeff Idelson, who has been named the new president of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Idelson survived one of the toughest jobs in sports p.r. from 1989-93, when he ran media operations for the Yankees.
Later, he worked with the 1994 World Cup people, then moved to the Hall and was VP of communications and education at the time of his promotion.
My daughters and I visited him in Cooperstown in late March, the day after he learned he would be interim president after Dale Petroskey resigned under pressure.
